GIMP preserves EXIF metadata when exporting as JPG - the option is there on the 
Export dialog and it's checked by default.  I agree on the point though - 
whether or not GIMP needs to load the metadata in an image is distinct from 
whether the user cares about having that metadata.  If you open a TIF file, 
what happens to the metadata when you export, and especially if you overwrite?
