OK, I'm quite wrong.  I was looking to be able to use Paste Into, and
have it paste directly into the active channel.

So to paste into a channel you have to...

- select the channel (in the channel panel)
- edit > paste (or paste into)
- select the layer panel
- hit the anchor button
- select the channel panel.

That works (but as you said is confusing as the floating layer shows
up in the layer dialog).

Poking around in the Edit led me to discover the cut/copy/paste named
buffer options.... more fun stuff to play with, it looks like... ;)

Thanks for the channel paste clarification.
