After more experimentation, I see that this is the situation:
If I click the canvas outside the text field, then the Gimp Text
Editor window gets focus and I cannot move the text with the keyboard
(nor the mouse, because I was not clicking on the text field). If I
click the canvas on the in the text field, then I can move the text
field with the arrow keys, but I still cannot drag it with the mouse.

Excellent, thanks! However, the more general question stands: do the
Gimp devs take kindly to feature requests regarding the usability of
Gimp's tools? Or should I not even bother and waste their time?
