I agree, but that case does not degrade badly when you only copy the text,
whereas if there is any case where you _don't_ want to copy the images etc.,
the current behavior makes those use cases impossible.

Note that within Chrome we put in ctrl-shift-v to "paste as plain text"
precisely because of issues like this.  Most other programs don't have that
option though (and even in Chrome it's hard to discover).
