With regard to exif data, there is an option in the jpeg save as
dialog to retain or strip out the exif data
Out of curiousity I just converted a jpg with exif to png then ran
exiftool against it and got out some of the exif data, so I am not
sure your "strip out exif data" is a correct statement
AFAIK, exif support has been in gimp for years. IPTC is something new,
though I think exiftool handles it
