Instead of doing a cut (^X), try doing a copy (^C) on the rectangular area.
Then you can create a new layer (transparent, if you like) and paste the copy
into it. This will put the copy at the same coordinates as the original.
Using cut as the first operation centers the resulting paste operation. Of
course to remove the same rectangle from the original layer you need to
recover it, which you can do with alpha-to-selection in the layer where you
pasted it the first time.

Short answer - no. You only save images. Now, if you want to make only one
layer visible, then you can save the image (<Image>/File/Save as ...), and
repeat ad lib for each separate layer. A script fu to do this might be easier.
