This functionality is also in the current 2.6 builds.  This feature didn't 
come up in the discussion in December, so this can be used to achieve what 
I want.  Thanks a lot for the tip!

However, I'd say that this is quite an unintuitive way of performing 
cropping.  If I want to crop an image, my attention goes to the features 
offered by the crop tool, not the selection tool.  Therefore I'd still 
consider the "non-destructive" crop feature at least a usability 
enhancement.  At least personally I would assume that the crop tool of a 
professional tool like Gimp would offer this option as well.  (Not sure 
whether PS has it.)
