No. There are many reasons NOT to want metadata in files. I don't want 
to accidentally publish photos with my personal annotations just because 
I forgot to strip them before publishing. This is just one example.

It is good and I am happy that digikam does NOT save these things in 
image files unless explicitly wanted by those users who prefer it that way.

There is no "always!", each one has it's own needs and procedures and it 
is nice that many programs, like digikam, leave the freedom to the user.
