Those 700 XMP and 33723 IPTC tags are not handled by the GTiff driver neither in
read nor in write mode, so that explains why gdal_translate doesn't copy them.
You could probably try the 'tiffset' utility to set them afterwards. Or hack
geotifcp.c to add support for those 2 tags. The tags array looks like an
interesting place where to hack that in.
