It is indeed important that KPA doesn't change originals. But some of us use 
different programs (and/or plugins) on the same images and that leads to 
"errors". At least KPA should check if an image was changed and mark it (with 
a token?) for revison.

On the other hand, the KIPI plugin "Archive to CD/DVD" has a "bug" with KPA, 
as it doesn't respect image orientation as set in KPA database. This leads to 
images being generated with wrong orientation. Here we're not talking about 
changing the original image, but generating a new one with "correct"
