Comment on WordPress All in One SEO Pack Plugin Review by WordPress SEO Themes.

That’s a fair point regarding the Meta Keywords Tag, for years I’ve been explaining to both my SEO clients and on my sites (try to find a page where I recommend using the Meta Keywords Tag) the meta keyword tag is useless, BUT users expect it as part on an SEO package.

On the Stallion Version of All In One SEO main options page:

Home Meta Keywords Tag Google ignores the meta keywords tag : A comma separated list of your most important keywords for your HOME Page that will be written as META keywords on your homepage. Please be aware Google and most major search engines completely ignore the keywords meta tag (AKA waste of time).

Use Categories for META keywords (NOT Recommended) : Check this if you want your tags for a given post used as the META keywords for this post (in addition to any keywords you specify on the post edit page). Not recommended, remember meta keywords are worthless SEO wise.

Dynamically Generate Keywords for Posts/Pages (NOT Recommended) : Check this if you want your keywords on a custom posts page (set it in options->reading) to be dynamically generated from the keywords of the posts showing on that page. If unchecked, it will use the keywords set in the edit page screen for the posts page. Not recommended, remember meta keywords are worthless SEO wise.

Under the edit post/page screen.

META keywords Tag : Comma separated keywords list relevant to this PAGE only. The meta keywords tag is NOT used by Google as a ranking factor or for anything SEO relevant, do not waste your time adding keywords here for Google.

Although you and I both know the meta keywords tag is a complete waste of time there are thousands of webmasters who believe it’s the be all and end all of SEO and won’t use a theme without them! I hope the above builtin information will guide more to not waste their time on meta keywords. For those who still use them, Stallion has the option builtin, harmless waste of time adding meta keywords.

Since you didn’t see this information guess you haven’t taken a look at Stallion v7. You should the new SEO features are awesome.
