Re: Clipboard API: remove dangerous formats from mandatory data types


IIUC the issue is that while transcoding complex formats via formats that
can be easily sanity-checked by the browser takes care of letting content
set complex formats like JPEG, GIF while protecting local content, but it
loses the ability for content to pass that content to other local
applications losslessly.  e.g. transcoding to BMP would remove JPEG
location, time/date, etc annotations.

The bug you refer to looks like it's talking about intra-Browser, i.e.
content->content, copy/paste operations for arbitrary MIME-types?
