Why is it the goal of GIMP 2.10 to produce a GEGL-based version
feature parity with the current stable?

Where did you even read this?

Oh, come on! You say you never heard that?

I can dig out specific posts if you really want me to. But Gez is quite correct - the notion of "backwards compatibility" has from time to time received considerable mention on the gimp developers list.

And you are asking me what knowingly false information you posted? How
about this bit above?

Gez hasn't posted any false information. His choice of comparing attention to themes with attention to the big picture regarding the direction GIMP has taken with respect to the needs of people using high end workflows was a bit unfortunate (the new themes are very nice and also the result of a lot of work from people who don't normally write code for GIMP). But I 100% understand and share his frustration.

Sorry, but the way things are going, I don't see this conversation
leading to anything positive.

If you have a clear vision, how color management should work in GIMP,
please share it.

1. Get rid of the babl flip code and attendant linear vs "gamma" precision code. Rip it completely out of babl, GEGL, and GIMP. I wrote a patch for this back in 2014, and I'd be happy to write a new patch for today's code base.

2. Apply my patches for allowing to edit in any well-behaved user-chosen RGB working space.

A start on the above two items is available from my github clones of babl/GEGL/GIMP:

If you are concerned about new menu options and you think that should
do different things, please tell us exactly what they should do or

The new menu items shouldn't do or say anything. They should be removed. If a GIMP user doesn't want to deal with color management, they already have the option to only edit sRGB images.
