[Digikam-users] "My Tags" is the base tag?

Dear list,

I have whipped all tags from my images and using the Tag Manager, I have 
whipped the database clean, also. Still, the Tag Manager shows a "folder" 
called "My Tags". Is this something internal to Digikam or is this some tag 
structure I missed when removing all tags? If it is internal are there tags, 
which are not mine, and therefore should not belong to the folder "My Tags"?

As a related question. I write Tags to side-car files all the time, and 
directly to jpg in addition, but not to raws. If I remove a tag from an image 
using "Right Click on the Image"->"Remove Tag"->"Tag to remove" the tag 
vanished, but this only seems to affect the Digikam database. exiv2 on the 
command line still shows the tag is present in the jpg. The tag remains, even 
if I select "Image"->"Write metadata to file"  (same for the side-car file). 
However, if I use the right panel for tags and remove the tag there and hit 
apply, the tag is also removed from the jpg. Is this intentional?

Thank you.
