Haven't got around doing that, yet, but have question. Deciding when to 
activate the legacy modes is easy: Whenever an image is loaded that uses 

But when to deactivate?
- As soon as there is no layer left using legacy modes? (I.e. you 
couldn't switch modes back and forth. Once switched away from legacy 
modes, the menu item would be gone.)
- When closing the image or switching to another image that doesn't have 
legacy modes. I.e. changing the active image will change the dropdown.
- When closing the last image that uses legacy modes. I.e. you could 
activate legacy modes for all images by keeping a foot-in-the-door image 
- Only when closing GIMP.

While I could think of use-cases for all of them, I think it boils down 
to how strongly we would want to discourage from using the legacy modes.

Is it decided that GEGL will not support the legacy modes, or should 
they be implemented in GEGL as well to retain backward compatability?
