Be careful, mirror option in brush editor is there for possible
compatibility with Photoshop presets and it's role is to mirror the
brush mask, not the stroke as the mirror option in the toolbar.

My opinion about the opacity slider in toolbar and blending modes
saving in presets
is that I would create new brush editor option with check boxes like
[x] Include global opacity in preset
[x] Include global composite mode
[x] Include mirroring

I would not conntect opacity option with global opacity.
Opacity in the toolbar is shared also for tools
that does not use the presets like Gradient tool etc.
It is tool attribute, not tool-that-uses-presets-attribute .

My 2 cents here ;)
