Hi Ryosuke Niwa, responding to this on list:

With the current version of the spec, no data from the actual OS clipboard  
will be visible in copy/cut event processing. I have however not added any  
specific limitations on calling getData() during copy/cut events, so if  
the script already used setData() it will return any added data of the  
requested format.

Does that sound OK to you?

Why not? Is it useful in any other context?

Those will typically be in the HEAD and not usually part of a pasted  
fragment. We certainly don't want to remove A tags or their HREFs, so I'm  
not sure why we'd want to remove e.g. LINK.
