GIMP has had very good DND support for quite a while. GIMP 2.2
improves it even further. Perhaps you just didn't try to drag things
around yet?

I don't see how perspective transformations are related to the Crop
tool. If you want to correct perspective, use the perspective
transform tool in Corrective mode. You can then align the grid with
the lines that should be corrected.

What would an image browser in GIMP be good for if there are lots of
image browsers that you can use? Just drag the images in from your
favorite image browser or configure it to use gimp-remote to load the
image directly into GIMP. I don't see why we should waste GIMP
developer resources on something that is already available.
