To add gasoline/petrol to fire: :-)

Thougth "work file" for xcf could be more precise than "project file"
since in a "project" I think could be involved more than one file,
instead (I think, correct me if I am wrong) that xcf will always be a
one file "project".

so be "workfile"! :-)

Import->insert into GIMP xcf workfile
Open->open GIMP xcf workfile (now also create a workfile without saving it and import the image in it immediatly)
Export->extract info depending on format into the format chosen, eventually discarding some data/info
Save->save GIMP workfile

I expect in a project file to save (more than in a workfile)

1) history 
2) multiple work files

Peace ... :-)
