 Almost, developers decide which pixelformat is appropriate for their

perhaps I missed or forgot something: what happens if a GEGL operation
is called with a wrong pixel format - will the operation refuse to work
or the data be converted to an appropriate format?

The data will be transparently converted (using Babl) so, apart from
performance, there is no "wrong" pixel format when passing buffers to GEGL
Assuming that one does to mark the GeglBuffers with misleading BablFormats.
