Telling you what you'd lose is precisely what 2.6 did. It was a useful trivia
but it's not really relevant to 2.8's save/export model.
Cleaning the 'dirty' flag after export isn't going to happen - there is a
user-made GIMP plug-in that will do this for you (it adds an "Export & Clean"
type command to the File menu) but the core behavior isn't negotiable :(
Tip: From 2.8 (.4 I think) onward will inform you if there are no changes since
the last export; the warning message will inform you the file was recently
exported so you can use this to make your own judgement about whether it's safe
There is however a GIMP plug-in that does an export and cleans the dirty flag,
but the core behavior is not
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
