LibreOffice is another good example. If you open a .doc and Save, it will ask you if you want to save it in native Open Document format. Inkscape will not save a PNG, you'd need to Export it. Save will make your file an SVG or SVGZ.

Libreoffice doesnt ask you, you choose or write what you want.
When you want to save with Libreoffice, or any editor, you are free to choose the name or extension. It's just GTK dialog, clear and quick.
 Impossible with Gimp-2.8. It's a regression.
