GIMP is the only application I know of where the selection mask is
considered actual document content (rather than an interface entity
used for manipulating document content). That was a very
workflow-breaking issue to come to terms with, and actually much more
so than Save vs. Export.
When you work on complicated selections, this is a very useful feature...
