...and then there are the fruitcakes like me who use sloppy focus
without auto-raise and frequently choose to work in windows that
aren't on top.

'Zactly. When you click on the GIMP menu/toolbar window, the
menu/toolbar window has focus, not any of the image windows. I
suppose GIMP might be able to hack around this by keeping a stack of
most-recently-focused windows, but that would still break too easily
in conjunction with sloppy focus.
The freedoms that we enjoy presently are the most important victories of the
White Hats over the past several millennia, and it is vitally important that
we don't give them up now, only because we are frightened.
