Good thing this is planned, but the discussion here is not about the EXIF itself, its about a feature that uses EXIF data in a way to present information, hopefully relevant to the viewers. Users can always edit their EXIF data trough their workflow, but if you offer a feature, that can only be useful if your user has to do extra work in a completely different flow, then that feature shouldnt be as relevant as it is.
There is as many workflows as cameras and software. EXIF is great if you understand AND care on how to use it. So if you are going to build some features around it, you have to take care of it and define yet another workflow user will have to learn to use and care.
Anyway, EXIF rocks, even tho I actually don’t use it, but if thats the way this app goes, I’ll have to play with the rules of their creators! ( wich is fine )
