Re: [Gimp-user] Why does Export To require confirmation on certain files

Because by design any format _not_ a native XCF file _is_ a "second-class"

As Ofnuts already pointed out, there is a loss of information when
exporting.  The thinking/logic is in the linked specification and is a good
decision - particularly for those with complex workflows and requirements
to maintain the highest amount of information while working...

You have saved the pixels, but not your work. Suppose you have spent
significant time doing a cutout to have an accurate selection, or
obtained the final image using several layers? Do you want to throw that
out without being told?
