Yeah you're right about keyboards because following a genre cliche is so progressive.

That's like saying you shouldn't use an acoustic guitar in folk because it's cliche. Some things are cliche for a reason.

Plenty use banjos and ukuleles. In addition to that, folk isn't about being different or progressive. Prog is, hence the name. You're comparing apples to oranges here.

Many prog bands use keyboards, but they don't all use keyboards in the same way. Its pretty dumb to call it a cliched genre because of heavy emphasis on a certain instrument. Thats like calling rock cliched for the heavy use of guitar, or folk because of the use of acoustics, or jazz for the use of brass instruments.

The reason prog bands commonly use keyboards is because prog bands like tone variety, and a good synthesizer and a good sampler offer a lot more tone variety than a guitar. Any techno fan will tell you that.
