The dialog does not really ask you if you want to export. It informs you
that the image can't be saved because the format you have chosen can not
handle some aspects of the image (transparency, multiple layers, ...).
It also offers you one or more ways to deal with this situation.

As far as I can see the new spec does not really change this. We should
definitely try to straighten this dialog (as Peter already wrote). Part
of that is probably that the dialog remembers the last made choice (per
format or per image?) and perhaps it should even offer a choice to skip
it entirely when exporting this image to this format again. I will have
to think about how this fits into the current export functionality. As
it is implemented on the plug-in side, it may turn out to be difficult
to change it. But first it would be good for us to know how it should
look and feel ideally.
