It was not accepted the idea that the floating selection was needed by gimp,
but not by the large majority of its users so there is not need to force them
to deal with it ?... So the floating selection would be accessible only by
purpose..and obviously by script and plugin  

And btw will be no better that ctrl c and ctrl v do what expected (how much
people got confused by ctrl v not pasting the copied layer, but create a
esoteric entity that automatically delete any previous selection ?)

Anyway back to the main point it seems a very good idea, i hope you will
present it to the GUI brainstorm and on the developer list
