Jonas,

I cannot shoot on your points... they are all valid.
But it all boils down to the question of a feasibility of such copy and 
such selection.
If it is wanted, the users should be "ready to face such a frustration" 
but then also be happy sometimes, hopefully.

I see otherwise no other way to provide copy-and-paste and this will 
probably stimulate browsers to make some protections (such as "copy 
underlying html").
