Such a thing comes without any further effort. The current state of
the image either contains layers or it doesn't. It's simple for
the PNG image code to check if there are layers, and return
a status "can't save all of the current image info."

There are a variety of UI ways of handling this, from
not offering any formats that will loose information to
save to, to the simple "do you want to collapse into PNG format" etc.

But all this is very elementary. I don't understand why
you raise it as being any sort sort of problem.
