This sounds great to me and I hope it will happen soon.

When OCLC Connextion was introduced into the world years ago, its users 
were asked to comment on it and provide improvement suggestions.  One of 
the items on my wish list was that the 6XX fields of authority records 
could be keyword searched.

OCLC replied saying that this request was not a priority at the time, 
but would be put on their list of issues to be tackled in the future.

Nothing's happened so far ...
