GIMP is the only application I know of where the selection mask is considered

document content).  That was a very workflow-breaking issue to come to terms 
with, and actually much more so than Save vs. Export.
In Paint Shop Pro and Excel the selection is also saved with document.

I actually find that behavior quite convenient. Sometimes I have a complex selection mask created that impacts multiple layers, and cannot complete the task until later. Saving the xcf with mask is very helpful.
