As far as I am aware the list of keywords is fixed. I'd also like to see more coupling between keywords and properies; the problem that I wanted to solve was putting a release name in a file (http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2005-11/0198.shtml). Why not make it possible to substitute any property using a keyword of the same name? Or perhaps a keyword with a standard prefix:

// $property:copyright$

Unfortunately you can't implement this using commit hook scripts because they can't (or, at least, shouldn't) modify the data that's being committed. So you would need a client-side wrapper around commit that modifies the working copy before committing.
