I figured the best way to form an opinion on the spec is to try it out
"live" but you are of course free to have an opinion on the spec also
without having played around with an implementation of it.
Allowing to export to the GIMP native format would introduce ambiguity: "If
I export to .xcf, will my document be considered saved? Will the document
<-> URI association be updated?" And so on. Keeping Save a copy allows us to
avoid this ambiguity altogether.
