Actually, the existence of burglars in the game explicitly contradicts the trilogy. The word isn't even used in any of the three books, and there aren't any particular instances of burgling being done (Pippin taking the palantir from Gandalf is really the only example of burgling). Neither is "rune-keeper" used, though there is ample evidence of the type of class and role.
