Perhaps I don’t know how system clipboards actually work, but the UX 
issue faced here is only in **pasting**! It should have nothing to do 
with copying, no matter whether rich text or plain text. A browser 
should copy styled text verbatim (without character transformations) 
and the OS or the receiving application can then apply some 
irreversible changes if they can do so and do know user expectations 
better. CSS is the wrong place to “fix” it. 

I’m trying to show that your “arguments go both ways” bullet points 
are actually also “not preserving is better”.
