I'm just concerned that the resulting database can be made future-proof such that it could be exported to other applications as the need arises.
Maybe it can be. Have you checked with ACD Systems to see if their database can export to standard formats.

Pity that there isn't an image format that could include such data and then the information could be embedded in the image file...
Some photo formats support embedding IPTC standard data. I'm pretty sure that this includes JPEG, TIFF, PSD, and possible a few RAW formats. But I don't have any experience doing this; I only know that it exists.

I'd be concerned about the reliability of the application that does the internal tagging, so my photos don't get trashed. There also might be a way to take a photo managers database information and put it into the IPTC slots. But I don't know how risky this is.
