Image representation, certainly.  Gimp's core -- maybe. That would
depend on how it interacts with the procedural database.

We'll know once it's started :)

AFAIK no, it was decided fairly informally, like in many OSS things --
people talked, it became the accepted idea over time, and nobody much
mentioned it outside of the GEGL-developer and GIMP-developer mailing
lists where it was discussed. Officially I believe Sven has said
something to the effect of 'there is no roadmap; people implement
things because it's fun or they need it, not because there is a
Gimp-developer mailing list
