I would say it is more like saving to RTF, which is a "save" option, though a 
crappy one.  (JPEG and RTF are both low-quality editable formats which lose 
data/formatting, compared to the native XCF and ODT formats).  Exporting to PDF 
is converting from an editable format to an essentially non-editable container 
format, and IS an Export--Incidentally, one printer in my area prefers even 
image files to be exported to PDF...*sigh*...because Windows prints it directly 
instead of shoving it through that crappy photo printing wizard.
