My 2 cents...

Once you have resized and exported you can Ctrl-Z to get back to the 
original size.

If you automate the process it has to be more robust: you can't avoid a 
preliminary blur to avoid artefacts that will appear in some cases, and 
possibly a little bit of sharpening on the result.

Otherwise, if you stick to some blind resizing, as said earlier an 
ImageMagick script is your best friend (it can read XCF).
