Such thing sort of solve the problem with multi-line keywords, but might
complicate matters which do not justify the cosmetic advantage?

Having prefix as tag in a keyword isn't such a bad idea, perhaps, since
one should really see them as separate from non-prefixed in certain
cases.  So far we just solved problems via the profiles or newly
introduced prefix? conditionals.
