Yes thats how I want to have it (beside that you also must be able to
nudge the selection whit out it making it into a float (e.g holding down
the alt).

Well as long as people doesn't understand how a real image manipulation
program works this will be confusing. I don't see why this will
make it more confusing? However we are dedicating a whole chapter how to
draw in Gimp in the GUT. This will hopefully solve some of the problems.
