That's the conclusion I had too. But it assumes that the content will always be
used inside a non-styled page.

There are two things that could be considered here to solve it:

 - Copy the link as is if the source is the same document as the target. I
mean, if I copy and paste a link inside the same FCKeditor document, I should
not have changes to it.

 - Implement a way to configure it. Maybe something similar to Firefox's
execCommand('styleWithCSS',true|false,null). In this way we instruct WebKit on
whether maintaining the link color on pasting, or leaving it intact. Maybe a
generic thing like execCommand('autoCorrect',true|false,null) would be even
better, if WebKit is doing also other things automatically, not limited to the
link color thing.
