Is there now a way to add new key words to the master list, or to
have a local list that is concatenated to the master?
There is no way. The primary use for the list of keywords is the Java
search engine in HTML, and that uses a static list generated from the
KEYWORDS file at R build time. That makes it a good idea to use at least
one of the standard keywords, and makes using others of little value.
(But not zero value: keywords are used in the refman.pdf although I think
that is not much used.)

Ask the CRAN maintainers?
