Okay, question - if you can make tool edits to a text layer (filters,
brushstrokes, etc.) and it will retain its status as a text layer (albeit with
some modifications, which GIMP will warn you about if you try to edit the text
later), why do other operations (like changing layer size) turn it into a
normal (non-text) layer?
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
