And I'm afraid GimpThumbnail could be useful for something
else (e.g., thumbnails ;-) and then this thing would have to
receive some other name...

What about something like GimpProofView?
- it't not longer than GimpThumbnail
- it resembles GimpPreview
- "proof" is a relatively good word (though mostly used
  in printing only, in this sense)
- the "view" is just a tag, but "proof" alone is strange

It's quite easy to invent new words and phrases for me,
thanks to my miserable English ;-)  but "proof view" seems
to be already invented, according to Google.
