I've found the "paste centers" behavior quite useful, and have
recommended it to lots of other people as a quick way to center
a layer (which used to be a FAQ, though less so now that the
align tool exists).
That said, it's hard to see an argument for anyone wanting to
paste to a part of the image that isn't visible. Surely most
people paste because they want to do something with the pasted
layer, which requires it being visible on screen.
Perhaps paste should center within the visible viewport?
