This would be nice:

"album auto tag" option:

[x]  automatically add album tags
        [x]   inherit tags from parent album

especially when downloading from camera

so that you assign tags to an album and they are automatically assigned to 
images imported to that album, IF you chose to do so on the import.

I don't see it in BKO, can some one verify?
