Well, if the geolocation tab could be fused with the Caption/Tags tab, 
you'd only need one Apply command: at the moment, you can set title, 
caption, tags and ratings in one go, then click Apply only once to apply 
all those changes (currently, Geolocation is separate though).

Personally, I try and get the metadata complete for the RAW files, and then 
they are carried over to teh processed images (unless I use batch tools, 
but that's a different subject).

I'll have to think a bit about your proposed work-around, esp. in relation 
to OP's problem: keeping external tags in place, while removing outdated 
Digikam tags. My gut feeling is that that's going to cause difficulties.
