Maybe we could also combine domains; e.g. http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org and http://biodiversitylibrary.org are really equivalent to each other; as are http://books.google.com and http://books.google.co.uk

This seems to have been done without the consensus of the editing (and image uploading) community. Please restore the import of time from EXIF, ASAP. Even if it is wrong, such data is useful for sequencing sets of images correctly, where image names do not facilitate this (perhaps Task T109589 is related?) It has always been editable.
