is there any standard tag to hold tags (keywords) that have been used to describe an image?

Interoperability with PS' File Info interface might be the de facto standard. Photoshop stores them in a puzzle wrapped in an enigma and an IPTC stuffed in an IRB and legitimised by an Adobe specific tag so on... you can find more details in Adobe's docs.

 sounds nice :)

 maybe we can define and register a tag?

Well it won't be interoperable with anything else. There are 1,001 metadata editors already out there, some more research might be worthwhile.

Chris Cox might chime in with Best-Practices-du-jour for Hiding Keywords in TIFF. :)
