Short description

Alter the name and usage of "Global Site Meta Keywords" and "Global Site Meta Description" from Global Configuration.

Expected benefits/ Problem solved

By its very definition, the same metadata cannot apply to each page. Its like giving the same title and description to every book in the library.

Comments/References

We could perhaps rename it is "Fallback metadata". The help button would read something like this: "It is recommended that you add unique metadata to every page. However, if none is entered, this metadata will show". This is how Joomlatwork.com's SEF Patch currently works.

I would suggest "Optional Metadata"

See my post here for a solution to the metadata problem.
The Joomla SEF Patch from joomlatwork solves many of the SEO complaints on here, IIRC.

Google Tools for Webmasters will nag about duplicate meta tags and such, so this is important to all of us.

Meta Tags are always useful for the Yahoo and MSN not for Google
