You're quite right. And therefore I like to refer to what Mikolaj 
Machowski wrote:

But it is not only about the Comment, Keywords and Creation-date. I 
would like to be able to edit ALL the relevant EXIF- and IPTC-tags from 
within one integrated dialog, instantly available and not only via a 
menu-option. As I suggested a sidebar-solution would be great.
