There is an almost trivial way of making floating selections 
disappear from the user's point of view:  just cause any
operation that creates a floating selection to automatically
convert it to a new layer.

The problem with this is that it would eliminate some very
useful functionality:  the ability to paste into a layer mask
or selection mask (in QMask mode).  Actually, it isn't obvious
to me what even an experienced Gimp hacker could do to keep
this functionality while removing floating selections.
