That solution is simple, but has a small difference with quickmask.
With QM you can save to channels, it is slower, but solves the problem
of losing past masks. So probably a similar approach could be used
then, so you can store planes for later (the equivalent of channels)
and thus be able to work with less crowded interface (only planes you
really need at a given time).

Out of image editing is a bit sucky. If there is a way so it
integrates with all tools, it would be really nice.

That starts to sound like 3d app with UV mapping. Poor Pedro. :]
