This is such a common task, there may be cause to have a Resize option bundled 
with the Export command.  Having to always perform them as two separate steps 
is an annoyance, but the possibility of accidentally saving the wrong 
resolution back to the XCF file is a danger.

Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.

Yes. Of course you may decide to make a flattened full resolution xcf version 
and export multiple resolution png files from this. 
It doesn't matter if you corrupt the source xcf (flattened) file as you can 
easily replace it from the master xcf document.
Courses for horses, I suppose.
