None of this is implemented. The idea of dynamicaly rendering them,
and having "path layers" has been launched, but no one is working on
it at the moment.
As for the other suggestions, you better file them at
bugzilla.gnome.org, or they will be lost in time.
And, instead of worshipping, if you would consider funding someone to
work on these features instead, it would become more likely they
would be implemented. As the things in GIMP stands now, developers
working on their free time are pursuing other parts of the program.
