You can move it around, and most tools (color, transforms, filters
etc) will operate on the Floating Selection as if it was a normal
layer.

Right; you could think of anchoring as *actually* pasting it - and
it's pasted into the layer that was previously selected.

If you want to keep it as a separate layer, right click on it in the
Layers pane and select "New Layer..." Note that the new layer will
only be as large as the pasted selection! You can use "Layer Boundary
Size..." or "Layer to Image Size" to change that at any time.

And well... I'll stop here, before it becomes yet another GIMP
tutorial too long for people to actually read. ;-)
