It looks like your best bet is to go to the source code itself.

There's some other sections in there for other  profiles too:

As for 'keywords', it looks like mediainfo is capable of displaying it just

but i do not see 'keywords' on the ffmpeg encoding list. It might be not be
that difficult to add support for these tags.
ffmpeg seems to be able to decode these tags just fine though -
