I guess this is the actual behavior.
What's wrong with it ?

That will be extremely annoying and useless. I don't remember to have
ever used the open dialog, I always drag and drop the (whatever) image.
Even if the program knows for itself that this is actualy an import, why
should the program stop and ask for permission ? (what would be the
benefit ?) Sounds absurd. I imagine that would be just a step to take
some users away from this application.

The export makes sense, in order to keep working in native format
(this is one of the annoyance with OOo/LO, where after saving as MS
Word for example, then the further editing remains in MS Word format
instead to remain in native OpenDocument). But the import ?
