I don't have the funniest notion what the software is; these are systems on
which I have no control and no rights above first level user, and they are
not open systems.

It may be that they are using keywords, but many obvious keywords are
legitimately used as category names on our projects. Therefore, it makes no
difference whether they're using keywords that match our categories, or the
categories themselves: the effect is exactly the same.
