[Digikam-users] IPTC and tags, again... Questions to the team

I understand the need for being able to recreate the tag hierarchy in
digiKam based solely on the image information.
Nevertheless using the IPTC keywords to save the whole path doesn't
seem to be the best approach not only because the user could be
interested in using the image with other applications but also because
he could be interested in providing the image file to other people
that would be using different programs. Interoperability and not
trying to tie the user to a program is one of the great strengths of
the Free Software philosophy and that's why I prefer to use it instead
of going to other solutions (like the Mac one where usability
sometimes is better but you're tied to what Apple wants).

Best regards
