I totally understand this impression (it's not just save/export where this 
"deaf ear" happens), but the fact remains that the decision was made long 
before that.

Documentation for the Save/Export distinction (and the decision to implement 
it) goes all the way back to March, 2009:
- http://gui.gimp.org/index.php?title=Save_%2B_export_specification&oldid=543

GIMP 2.8.0 was released in 2012 -- a full Three Years Later.
