On my somewhat outdated SUSE-11.1 'gimp' still doesn't support 16bpp. :

GEGL was originally conceived as a GIMP core replacement in 2000, finally in 2006 the external API was deemed stable enough and capable of replacing the GIMP core. On 20 December 2007, it was added to the development version of GIMP. Some of GIMP's tools have already been converted to GEGL operations; mostly tools which modify colors, brightness or contrast have been converted.

- doesn't sound like GEGL is everywhere it should be.

... :


Please note that GIMP remains 8-bits until GEGL covers the whole application. 

So, to me it doesn't look like 'gimp' supports 16bpp.
