Unfortunately that is the whole point of the distinction - "Save" is now intended strictly for XCF.  Me, I would like to see an option where instead of just displaying a message to "use Export for non-XCF formats" that message box should have "Export / Cancel" buttons to make the transition easier.

This does, of course, mean that Exporting as a non-XCF file no longer resets the saved state of the image.  GIMP will now constantly ask you to "Save changes?" if you haven't saved an XCF copy (even in workflows where there is no need to have one) of the image.

And you do know JPG to JPG in general is not a good workflow to be using due to it being a non pixel perfect (lossy) compression?  (Okay, if part of your workflow involves resizing it to a smaller resolution then this alleviates the matter - I do it a lot myself.)
