Well, yes, but I wrote that in an earlier reply already.

The plan wasn't a plan but a request for comments.

The new file format we outlined will be strongly dependent on GEGL and
it will require decoders to either use GEGL or to implement
functionality similar to GEGL.  In case you didn't notice, OEyvind
Kolaas is working on this and he already came up with a nice subset of
what could be the final file format.
