As "a stable keyword is in use" is either ambiguous or outright wrong
(depending on exactly what was meant by that), I would propose that
one of the following cases replace that:

* At least one keyword beginning with "~" or the value "**" is in the
global ACCEPT_KEYWORDS.
* At least one keyword beginning with "~" or the value "**" is in the
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS used for the package in question.

This is required because on a typical ~amd64 system, the effective
value of ACCEPT_KEYWORDS is "amd64 ~amd64" -- which would be covered
under "a stable keyword is in use" (the same applies for other arches
as well).
