i believe very hard to find a good reason to switch off visibility of a layer
in order to edit it,
For that other sw lock invisible layers in order to avoid them edited by mistake
i do not think a similar lock will be good in gimp ,this for several reasons
,(one is that i suppose such lock may create problem to scripts and plugins )
But a warning as " the layer you want edit is invisible, you may want switch on
its visibility before editing" may be quite helpful to improve gimp usability.
Editing the wrong layer is a quite commune mistake (sometimes still happen to
me after years that i use gimp)
Sure such warning will not completely solve (will not prevent to confuse the
"visible" with the active layer)
but i, i believe, will help a lot...because if somebody try to edit with brush
tools or filters or colors tools a invisible layer is at 99.9% for mistake
