Hi Maderios and Gilles,

The tag isn't from any image, it's really generated by digiKam. I don't 
know what version it appeared in first.

It does seem possible to rename it and/or move it to other places on the 
tag tree. But I wouldn't actually trust using it for other than its face 
recognition purpose. I don't use face recognition when tagging images. 
So I'll try moving it to a place on the tag tree where it's less
