I take back everything (almost)
since I noted that it is not konqueror that honors EXIF
but rather the camera (Canon) that stored a rotated thumbnail
in the file.

My new camera stores a thumbnail as taken orientation.
My new camera can also save original RAW (NEF) at the same
time as it stores high quality JPEGs.

I could settle with the following:

When first entering download dialog digikam starts a
wizard that asks the user if (s)he wants convenience
or uncompromised quality.

convenience: autorotate images, create a new directory
uncompromised: no autorotate, the camera file is unmodified.

Then add a note about that individual selections can be
made in the advanced settings.
