Is it worth making the user agent prompt the user to confirm the copy if it
detects anything that isn't text?

That is not as bad as disabling a feature when certain input is used
however it would contribute to more error blindness.

Perhaps there should be a note under security considerations that the user
agent should let the underlying OS / antivirus check the copied text.
