No. See:

- work on a image, save: a.xcf

-> you are working on a.xcf

- continue to work on it, save as: b.xcf

-> you're now working on b.xcf

- continue to work on it, save a copy: c.xcf

-> you continue to work on b.xcf

Save a Copy may become less important if and when GIMP is able to keep
track of the whole undo history in a XCF file (or a new file format).
Nut even then it might be faster to save a specific state as a copy or
to save as and continue working from that state in a new file.
