GIMP can not support all workflows equally well - it can not be a
breadknife and a scalpel at the same time. Right now, GIMP is a lousy
scalpel. It has a ton of flaws that makes many people use it as a
breadknife. But at least it seems to know what it wants to be. Even
among commercial producs there is specialization AFAIK. There is
Painter, Photoshop and Lightroom -  each with their own usecases - and
I can not belive that you would recomend people use the wrong tool for
the task at hand.
