I hope I'm not showing my lack of UI skills here, but:

"Cannot heal indexed images. Use Image->Mode to change color mode." Points: Instructs how to fix the problem. Concise enough (I hope) to fit translations. Remove "Use" if constraints prevent users from seeing "Image->Mode" (the important part) when clipping. And as a general, pie-in-the-sky, comment: It seems that indexed mode editing is cumbersome, confusing, and limited. When core operations are moved into a GEGL, The GIMP should probably lose indexed mode editing (indexed formats autoconvert to/from) and a separate tool be created just for this type of editing. More blue sky: It would be really slick if all GEGL-apps could shuffle images amongst themselves, assuming that interface is intuitive. So that, for example, an indexed editor, a pixel editor, a SVG editor, and a prepress app could all have a 'window' onto a shared image stored in GEGL space.
