You presume that I have done nothing to improve the content of image.
The file saved IS degraded relative to the image I am editing.

No. If you want to specify something other than a user-specified
default for an acceptable level of quality while editing in the GIMP
(for example, overriding it with an image-specific value), that is
when you should use Save As. If file size is your main concern, use
Save For Web. If honoring the user's expectations with regard to image
quality is your focus, Save should recognize user-specified default
