I believe it should always be selectable and copyable.

The issue is the same with the old text-transform property. When selecting and 
copying a text that has been altered by text-transform; do you get the 
untransformed or the transformed text?
Without testing I am guessing all browsers return the transformed text. 
In the same manor text that has been altered by adding generated content, 
should also return the CSS altered version.
