Add another voice to all the others saying "No, I leave my originals
untouched, and only edit copies".

In fact, I don't think I'd ever met anyone who regularly ran
exiftran on every archived original, until this discussion. 
Exiftran isn't even installed by default on any linux distro I've
used.  Is it commonly found on mac and windows machines?

It's a bummer that it's not something like UTF-8 (and quite odd,
if the spec came from Japan), but editing ASCII is still useful
for quite a large number of people.

What do modern cameras sold in Japan save in the EXIF fields?
