With old plugins, all interaction happens in a plugin's window. Compare
it to any tool like brush or crop that works directly on canvas.

Thanks! that helps to clarify the term.

About this specific point, I believe that many of us want more features going "on-canvas" when possible. In GIMP dev version, the filter are also previewed on-canvas (when implemented as GEGL operations). I already discussed that it would be very cool if import could end up with on-canvas preview as well at some point (especially useful with lossy formats, etc.). These are only passive canvas interaction, but I could imagine active interaction on the canvas too in the future, and no only for tools. :-)

Canvas interaction are often much more intuitive than through a dialog or a dock. And reproducing the image inside the dialog/dock is often more of a workaround than a solution in my opinion (though in some cases, it may have its good points).
