Or has it evolved like this for historical reasons? Clearly, the choice of interaction model affects the Gimp learning curve.I think the big difference here is that different types of objects in the GIMP are fundamentally different in nature. It may be possible to make "generic" operations on objects more consistent, but there is a limit to how far this can go - lots of judgment calls to be made. The one thing I am sure will not happen, is simplification past a point where functionality is lost. That's something that happens to commercial software... :o)
Another difference is that you have several active objects cooperating at the same time (layer, selection, path, text input..) so it owuld be hard to tell which one get the "generic" action...
