If you'd post it as a second answer I could accept that (until, perhaps, someone thinks of a way how to do this).

Okay, my +1. Are you sure about that? Just clipping masks?

BTW, if I wanted to use rasterization, then there is a better way to go: copy the X layer, switch to quick mask mode, paste, switch back, apply current selection as a mask to the Red layer. I know this trick, but I am looking for something better.

Red X is just an example. Both of my layers are complex and both are to be editable. Your answer would work only for that particular example. Moreover, it implicitly uses rasterization (through ctrl-clicking channels) which I wanted to avoid.
