If we are not talking about raw pictures and you did previously write 
metadata to pictures there is a chance that it comes back by read 
metadata from photo, in my opinion it schould count at least for tags, 
maybe is a rating some sort of a tag too.

using tags gives the opportunity to far more complex management

It can maybe be done by writing metadata to photo in digikam. Maybe 
gwenview can read (some of) it, but it will certainly not read from 
digikams db, if you going to test it, please share your experience. And 
using sidecarfiles is a no go as you can read in yesterdays messages.
