I though "Align Visible Layers" (as found in the Image->Layer menu)
could do this but when I tried it, I found that it has quite some
modes but none of them seems to b particulary useful. I haven't been
able to accomplish your task with it.

But I think this plug-in (plug-ins/common/align_layers.c) has some
potential. It it a simple plug-in that doesn't deal with pixel data.
Adding some alignment modes would be a nice task for someone who wants
to get into GIMP plug-in development...
