Well, but as far as I can tell we don't currently *have* a way JS can place
pixels from a canvas on the clipboard (except by putting a piece of data
labelled as image/png or similar there). So if you're pushing back against
the idea that JS can place random data on the clipboard and label it
image/png, how exactly would you propose JS-triggered copy of image data to
work? Say, from a CANVAS-based image editor?
