Yes, we are :) If you only work in JPG, just think of Export as saving,
you can ignore the "save" menu item.

Some good reasons for splitting it in two items:

I at least prefer having both the full, untainted XCF available at all
times, and once in a while I'll export to JPG/PNG, this used to require
a lot of maintenance before, now I can just to ctrl+s or ctrl+e
depending on whether I want to save or export.

Also, when saving as JPG etc. in 2.6, you would get a warning about how
layer information is lost. This you don't get now, saving always
preserves all information, it is assumed that when you export, you're
aware that information is lost. It's a lot more honest, in my opinion.
