Considering #2 - What about iptc fields that Digikam doesn't use? They could become unnecessarily deleted if you remove all iptc.  In my case last year I had some old tags in "supplemental categories" and some other iptc fields that would not have been repopulated using this method.  This might be useful:
exiv2 -v -M"del Iptc.Application2.Keywords" [filename]

Also for anyone interested Arnd and I both wrote scripts to scan directories and remove tags using this method last December.  They should be available on the mailing list. One example: http://mail.kde.org/pipermail/digikam-users/2007-December/004507.html
