Fine-grained --autounmask-* options to disable keyword, license, or USE changes?

Zac Medico-2
Like --autounmask-keep-masks, it can be useful to prevent --autounmask
from creating other kinds of changes:

* keywords
* license
* use

In order to prevent changes to keywords, should we be consistent with
--autounmask-keep-masks, and call the option --autounmask-keep-keywords?

Other ideas?

Should --autounmask-keep-keywords be independent of
--autounmask-keep-masks, so that it's possible to accept unmask changes
and reject keyword changes? Maybe it's not a very useful distinction in
practice, but making them independent seems cleaner in some ways.
