I started thinking about it when https://bugs.gentoo.org/351922 was
filed (this is only an example).
The SECURITY keyword is not applied consistently (~80 bugs total), but
the description says "Add this on all security related issues."

Yes, the same way.

I wonder how many e-mails would be sent if we used the "Change several
bugs at once" Bugzilla feature. My guess is just one e-mail.

Oh, I guess infra would reject spending time on this (low benefit to
effort ratio indeed).
Maybe we can just update description of obsolete KEYWORDS with something
like "*** DEPRECATED *** don't use for new bugs". That should be easy
and address most of my original point.
