Could we have "Save image tags as Keywords" option per tag? That way you could 
select which tags should be stored and synced with Keywords and which not (DB 
only or some other field).

I would still like to have digikam DB fully recoverable from images itself, 
therefore proposal from Gilles about using "Supplemental Categories" for full 
tag hierarchy storage is actually not bad either.
