ods pdf keywords limit

What is the limit on number of characters or text that can go into the keywords of the document properties section of a pdf file created using ODS? The metadata I am trying to include with the pdf file keeps getting truncated.

According to this web site: [pre]http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/pdf/PDFReference15_v5.pdf[/pre] the limit for this version of PDF was 255: [pre] "Acrobat viewers display the document’s metadata in the Document Properties
dialog box and impose a limit of 255 bytes on any string representing one of those values." (page 972, item 137, Section 10.2, “Metadata” )[/pre]
If ODS is letting you pass more than 255 characters, it is possible that the Acrobat viewer is doing the truncation. I could not find an ODS limit for KEYWORDS= in the doc.
