It's what Export -> Merge Visible layers should give you. I don't see
why we need an extra menu entry for it.
Regardless of that, the way this should be implemented is that file
plug-ins should have a way to get read-only access to the projection.
That would avoid the hassle of merging and it would guarantee that what
is saved is what the user sees.
