But surely some information there is better than none!? Even if the 
keywords are repeated it still provides information and therefore 
context and meaning of the site, no?

My understanding is that they don't get used by google, but it still 
likes to see them there, and  gives you a checkmark for having them - if 
that makes sense. Apparently it all contributes to having well formed 
pages, etc.

Google... the mystery machine! ;-)
