And IIRC we even discussed the possibility that XCF - in its present form - may become a format that can only be imported and exported, and not saved.

Whatever GIMP's capabilities will be, we won't let any file format limit us - not even our own.

I can even imagine a version of GIMP that doesn't need an explicit Save method anymore - because no image data is saved in a heavy- weight file, only the edits and adjustments, and you will be able get Exports/Snapshots (or whatever you may call them) from any point and any time in the processing graph.

I totally agree- I could imagine an non-explicit save working something like this in the future, too. Especially in the context of the multiple window situation, which also needs to be looked at and integrated into the UI design at some point (!). Lots of work to do on this line of thought.
