How do I best encode the intended audience of a photograph inside a JPG file?

I have a collection of photos (about 30,000) which I would like to share. While I am happy for anyone to see most of them, there are some I only want to share with friends, some I only want to share with family, and some I want to remain private entirely - like Flickr's options.
As far as I can tell, there is no metadata standard for encoding intended audience, i.e. nothing like the IPTC or EXIF standards for encoding a caption, or the ISO speed.
My current plan is to use Digikam to simply tag photos "friends", "family", or "private", with none-of-the-above meaning everybody.
Is this the best way to do it?
