Good for you, then. You won't be surprised to hear that I've got issues 
with a few things in XHTML2 as well.

So, to recap, when doing copy/paste, only the actual text in markup 
should be copied? In that case, for consistency, the same should also 
apply to paragraphs (and similar block level elements) and line 
breaks...if there's no line break between paragraphs in source, there 
shouldn't be one when copy/pasting. This would then help in stripping 
this type of operation in browsers of any remnant of usefulness.
