Accidental work loss is the main reason I dislike the new model.
I don't much mind the Save vs. Export split, or remembering when I

sav^H^H^Hexported and therefore it's safe to quit GIMP. With
the 2.8 model I actually have more risk of work loss, not less.
If you forgot to export as JPG but saved the image as XCF, then you can
reopen Gimp and produce your JPG. Trouble, yes, data loss, no. If you
"save" to JPG but forget to save as XCF, less trouble in some cases,
but data loss in others.
