Interesting, that's a very creative approach.

Supposedly that would only apply to plain-text clipboard, and the rich
 text version of the clipboard would be unaffected, since by the time 
you paste it it is no longer in the clipboard, right?

I don't know if I like this. I gives control to the author about what 
may rather be a user preference. But then again it can enable the 
author to tell separate some use cases (`abbr 
{text-transform:lowercase; font-variant: small-caps;`) from some 
others (`em {font-style:normal; text-transform: uppercase;}`) that 
that may be a good thing.
