It surely is relevant, but it isn't new. When discussing the
introduction of a common preview widget for the plugins (which did not
exist in 2.0) all these ideas have already been floating around.
Unfortunately everything boils down to that somebody has to implement
this. The current widget is certainly a big improvement over the earlier
nonexistance of previews and solves a lot of problems. Extending it to
do zooming would be of course very good, and I think that patches to
implement this in a sane manner would be gladly accepted.
The "Preview in the Image Window" is harder. The same holds here: If
somebody prepares a good patch it'd be accepted gladly.
I just want to make you aware that there are not that many people
actively developing on the GIMP and there are certainly more pressing
issues than the preview. Please don't hold your breath for improvements
