In an ideal world I agree that this would be the right answer. What
concerns me is that in this less-than-ideal world, many people are
likely to have images with incorrect exif data, including anybody who
edited a rotated exif jpeg in GIMP 2.0 or 2.2 and then resaved it as
jpeg. It's hard to get a fix on how large a population this is, but I
bet if we impose a solution on them that rotates their images without
giving them any way to prevent it, we'll be subjecting ourselves to
some angry bug reports.
