Maybe _you_ do, but I (and at least some other users) make a clear distinction between XCF, which stores the image and my manipulations on it (layers, masks, selections), making it possible to change some operations afterwards (if for example some details are lost in a certain printing process or if I just change my mind about how the image has to look in a series or ...) and standard image formats (which only store the results of these operations). This behaviour is exactly the same as your wordprocessor refusing to save to PDF. PDF (like standard image types) is absolutely perfect for distribution, but I suppose you too don't save longer texts to PDF while working on them? I agree that for some small documents that I just want to archive, I remove the original word processor file afterwards, and I do that for some XCF files too. It's a little overhead for small changes to an image, but a real improvement for the images you are really working on. I know that in previous versions it was possible to use the "Save a copy" function (which I used), but the new behaviour makes it impossible to make a mistake while saving (making you lose all operations without warning you). So from now on, I can concentrate on the image, without worrying about saving "the right way". If you are really really annoyed by this behaviour, use 2.6, start a fork, ask/pay someone to start a fork for you, use another image editor, ..., but please stop spamming this otherwise very useful mailing list. Everybody knows you and some other users don't like it, everybody knows some users (including me) do like it and the developers clearly explained the research and the reasons for this decision.
