Personally, I'm less than thrilled to see an API giving sites more ability
to mangle what I copy.  Clipboard hijacking scripts that add "read more
at..." spam to copied text make it painfully clear that sites will actively
abuse a clipboard API; I'd sooner see sites have less control, to prevent
this gross abuse, not more.  Browsers should copy only what I tell them to
