A picture isn't always editable... You cannot really re-edit a GIF, for instance, because if you need new colors you are definitely not going to have the same result as if you had edited the original XCF and exported it to GIF again.“Save as…” means “save to a new file with a different name and/or format”. “Export” means “put the contents of the current document in a file of a nature this app isn’t intended to handle”. (At the same time “Import” means “bring data from an alien file and convert it into what this app is intended to handle”.) For instance, saving a spreadsheet to a text file or a word processing document to a non-editable file format (PDF or picture). In the Gimp, Export should be reserved for PDF, ASCII art or any other file type that isn’t a picture.
