I have a "staging" calibre library where my new purchases are quarantined for a bit. Usually only long enough to "fix" any wonky metadata, to add any relevant series info, convert (if necessary) and to check for--and fix--glaring formatting issues that will detrimentally affect my reading enjoyment. It's at this point where I usually add a few "sensible" tags that make sense to me and my library. After that, it's off to the permanent calibre library.

That said, when making epubs for production, I put in whatever the boss (SWMBO!) supplies. Who knows? Someday vendors may make them searchable, like keywords on a web page.
