I don't see how it differs. Author, time taken, tags. I would not expect
digikam to import any data from the video just save any user created
metadata to an associated XMP file. Just like what people do when they
create a JPG of the video and associate the image with that video.

What's wrong with just saving the database data (e.g. tags) to the file
in an image format rather than a video format. I agree that there is
currently no standard but who cares as long as the data can be exported
