Congrats! this is a much-needed step.

Can I ask what "non-destructive editing" is? According to Adobe, this includes:
* Color adjustment layers (such as levels, hue/saturation, threshold, etc)
* filter layers (such as blur, sharpen, emboss, etc)
* smart objects (i.e., ability to scale / rotate a layer as a single object,
  without changing its pixel data)

Maybe this could be expanded upon and prioritized.

I also have a couple of suggestions for things to put on the roadmap:

* change the floating selection behavior so that float and un-float can
  be automatic and not need user's explicit input. 
* Automate layer boundary management so that the user can draw on any point
  at any time and not worry about increasing the boundary 
* unified transform tool (I remember seeing plans for that last item on 
  Peter sikking's Blog)

So, what do people here think? I believe all three are essential in making
GIMP a faster and more hassle free tool. I can expand on these subjects if
