That's not what I see in the XMP or jpeg files. There, the applied keywords 
appear in several places, sometimes with each element of the 'path' 
individually, sometimes as  complete paths, including root tags that I usually 
do NOT apply explicitly (as they serve only to organise the tags). 

If they appear as a path, I see one path for each level (so if I have a path 
'R/a/b/c', I'll have entries 'R/a', 'R/a/b' and 'R/a/b/c' when I applied 'a/b/
c' and R is the root tag, which I did not apply).

So you can basically pick which representation you want when reading the file 
(I use that to extract captions and titles when creating a HTML page for a set 
of images).
