my first feeling is that I use the triangle/circle a lot, to

Some colour selectors let you choose line/triangle/square/etc,
and that is also useful.
Even Itten at the Bauhaus used the wheel. Let's keep it.
Or are you proposing to add a new mode, and keep the wheel?
But I think that's a separate issue from HSV vs. HSL.
The colours you mention that "can't be represented in hex"
also can't be represented in an 8-bit-per-channel image model.
Certainly there's merit in re-thinking the colour
choosers once the gimp core has more than 8-bit-per-channel colour.
