Hmmm..Just for me to get a feeling on how it would work them:
Instead of creating a floating selection, as it is now, a new "full 
featured" layer would come up.

 Maybe the anchor button could be preserved, in order to allow a quick 
merge with another layer of choice (either the previously used layer, 
from which the selection was copied or floated, or the next layer 
selected). I think this way all today's functionality would be 
preserved.

Does the GIMP core treat these floating selections too different of 
actual layers? Or would a hack like placing a call to 
gimp_floating_sel_to_layer placed just after a floating selection get 
created do the job? (I am not suggesting that his should be the 
'fix')
