That seems to be the best choice indeed. But I think there's a minor issue 
with this: what if the user has a layer with something painted on it, and 
moves the painted area out of the bounds of the image. What should happen if 
the user tries to fill the layer: I think I would expect the area moved out of 
the image would be filled as well, but with this filling it would only fill 
the area inside the image.

Filling the image seems a good choice here as well, yes.
