I disagree.  Saving a selection to a channel mask allows you to do
more things: you can save several selections, to edit them separately,
and to activate any of them when needed.  This is very useful when you
want to isolate several parts of an image and work on them separately.

The Quick Mask feature is useful for modifying a selection easily, but
the channels masks offer more options.  So I think that it is useful
to add a tip about the Quick Mask because I forgot this in the list of
tips, but I would also keep the one about the Channels.

That sounds OK, although I would like to make it a bit shorter.  I
will add it anyway, until someone suggests a better wording.  Thanks!
