As I understand it, one of the major points of GEGL is that it is able to apply changes nondestructively, so you'll only be at risk of irreversibly converting your data to 8-bit/channel when you flatten it for export. IIRC, this is supported by a major change in GIMP behavior: in 2.8, GIMP will only save files in its own format, with other formats requiring an explicit export step.
