From the digikam handbook:
"The dual approach to store metadata in a database and in the image
files guarantees ultra fast searching and secure archiving freely
accessible to other applications, platforms and formats."
I would accept that writing into the original may not be a good idea,
but it should be possible writing into a copy. It would be rather
limiting if ratings, keywords and copyright remarks can only be read
