I can confirm this is still a problem in Safari 6.0.4 running in Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion). The "beforepaste" handler does not fire:

- when Cmd-V is pressed
- or when the Edit menu is opened
- regardless of if it's attached to the window or document
- with or without the "capture" flag set for addEventListener
- with or without spelling the handler "beforepaste" or "onbeforepaste" (as a long fixed Safari bug required).
- nor if "beforepaste" is attached to every dom element in the whole document

This makes it seem pretty much impossible to paste into anything but a textfield or a textarea in Safari. In Cappuccino, we often have non-traditional editable controls (token fields, collection views, tables) where you'd expect to be able to paste.
