Umm, no. As far as I know compositing refers to the handling/merging
of the layers of an image.
In a future GEGL-based GIMP, layers can also be "algorithmic", for
example: a blurring layer. (Photoshop calls these "adjustment
layers".). Layers can also form a general directed acyclic graph, not
just a linear stack as now.
