Using the examples of video editing packages is rather disingenuous as
they are all project based programs that work on the expectation of
combining multiple files and outputting in a different format. A very
different case.

Care to give any examples of the genre of image editing programs that
insist on defaulting to working on intermediate formats ?

Sometimes it's better to accept a program's development has gone wrong
and return it to a more acceptable workflow that matches the
expectations of it's users.

Agreed 100%, also do not know why Audacity is in there. I expect audio to be saved in Audacity in wav file format (which is what it does), with a project file in some Audacity-specific format (which it does) and then when I'm done on the project, to export it to something other than wav (which I knew it would be in to start with). Totally different expectations then we have had for GIMP for over 10 years now. I'm getting used to the change, but I still do not like it one bit and it is still an interruption to the normal flow of work (open, edit, save, close, done). Now it's Open/import, edit, export, make sure image actually saved, close - dismissing any useless dialogue boxes because GIMP now works differently then it has for 10 years.
