I'm all for "standards of function, design and behavior."
Like for instance, when the GIMP saves a file, this file preserves
the state of the project's work in progress; it is a project file,
not an image file.
And for instance, when creating a file formatted for end use by any
of numerous applications, that's "exporting the project" as a
finished product, e.g. an image file.
A user has to do one  extra extra mouse click or keyboard
shortcut to "discard" a project that has been exported without being
saved. That's a reminder to save the work if it might be of any
future use. As such it's a common and expected feature, seen across
a range of software from word processors and desktop publishing
packages to video editing suites. This feature imposes no hardship
on any user and occasionally prevents lost work.
I don't normally feed trolls. But this week I am doing an
experiment in counter-trolling, in several contexts. This will
probably be my last post in a troll threads on gimp-user this year.
Sometimes, one must misbehave.
