Because jumping from one (bitmap) application to another (vector) and
back is fairly normal? While I agree with you that Inkscape is a
superior authoring tool for vector graphics, there is no reason why
GIMP shouldn't have SVG export. Or PDF export.

@Programmer In Training (jeez, is that your real name? you know people
on the Internet might have problems referring to you? ;)) As a matter
of fact GEGL comes with an SVG loader and also supports a number of
SVG Filters. It also has quite a interesting and extensible API for
drawing paths. So in the future GIMP will at least load complex SVG
files correctly.
