just a nit to pick: it is the bottom layer which determines whether to perform screening or multiplying

i presume you are referring to "Pegtop’s extensive survey of blend modes" [1].
The formula given there is exactly the GIMP implementation.

As you said, softlight can be regarded as a smoothened variant of overlay mode which offers softer transitions.
Mathematically, this formula describes a linear cross-fade between multiply and screen depending on the base layer value.
