OK, I found no definition of Status in the SQL Server 2005 documentation of sp_fulltext_keymappings. Do you get different values in your key mappings? Or all they all '8' as they are for the tables that I queried?
The dropping of the status is interesting, since it was apparently decided that it served no valuable purpose.
It is possible that you are remembers the status definitions from sp_help_fulltext_catalogs, which are here.
Sorry not to be more helpful.
