I say we just use 2.0 for the first stable tree using GEGL. This entire
argument sucks, imho. The first stable tree using GEGL has been called 2.0 for
so long, why call it anything else now?

It isnt about GTK2, or about Gnome2, or about any thing else. Its just what
someone started calling it, and it stuck. And yes, maybe its useless version
number bloat, but who cares? Gimp has been 1.x for so long now, and GEGL is a
huge step in gimp's development. When you change this much in a product, you
up the major version number.
