This is not about me being unhelpful. I am just trying to tell you what
Amarok developers think about this.

So to address your travel problem: When you take all of your music files
with you I don´t think it is too hard to also take the database file
with you.

About the database being hidden: This is the standard way of doing it
for KDE apps. Just backup your .kde (or soon .kde 4 folder in Kubuntu)
and you got all your settings.

About digicam: I doubt digicam does operations on its database that are
as complicated and "heavy" as those for Amarok. So saving this in the
folder of every album for example is not an option.

"There are plenty of corresponding fields to your metadata in the id3
spec..." <- the point here being plenty. There is no good way of doing
this in a way that is transparent to other applications as well. And
doing something that only works for Amarok is not very open source. It
would be lock in.

I hope this helps you understand the reasoning behind this better.
