Yes, yes, yes! And how is it with that interoperability then?
Metadata inside files are the most portable and easily managed.

The *thing* is, writing exif data to jpg/png/tif/... is not *usually*
distructive where writing after-the-fact to a raw (original) image may
and may not be noticed immediately. So non-destructive editing of raw
files usually employes a *side-car* file or a database where the edits
recorded and applied to the output file, jpg/png/tif/...

So set your meta-data in your camera to be added to the files the
outputs and maintain pristine originals and do as you please to

But to maintain a catalogue of your photos and accompanying side-car
requires an application such as darktable or digikam or photoshop or
and you may become locked to a particular operating system. All about

Still, "all about choices" :)

Yed. I don't mind to add metadata to RAW files. I work most of the time with
JPG (RAW is in an archive) and I wish its metadata to be accessible for various
applications. So I choose my tools accordingly...
