GIMP preserves EXIF metadata when exporting as JPG - the option is there on the Export dialog and it's checked by default.  I agree on the point though - whether or not GIMP needs to load the metadata in an image is distinct from whether the user cares about having that metadata.  If you open a TIF file, what happens to the metadata when you export, and especially if you overwrite?
