[...] the old "load JPEG + edit + save JPEG" serves perfectly to a casual user, who just needs a very basic image editor[...]
Disagreed. The length and the shape of the workflow doesn't tell anything about the features of GIMP being used. You can use the most sophisticated functions of GIMP and nevertheless prefer a slim workflow with JPEG as the single output format.
[...]is that GIMP can no longer accommodate the needs of casual users without compromising the needs of power users, and those power users are the intended userbase for the project.[...]
Disagreed. This has been stated but not been proven. You can make a "save as JPEG and quit without being asked afterwards" feature optional without any side effect and without too much effort.
BTW: My favorite argument against such an option (besides "use another software!" and "no") is "everything convincing has been said elsewhere".
