Yes this would be very good. I think a new BKO is needed. From my point of view this would help for my Sync plugin (yeah I know I've made 0 progress lately!) when integrating with e.g. Facebook - Tags of regions to represent your friends etc. I'd imagine an extension of the current tags concept to store always a region (defaults to the whole image) of an item. Smaller regions can be defined that represent e.g. faces or other special notes of interest. 

I can see how Face Detection could automate the assignment of these people tags.

I wonder however if such a capability could be included as a kipi plugin? What more would the API need to do to enable this. We are always discussing when we'll break the API anyway so perhaps the requirements of face detection should help mould the API changes?
