This is a bad idea design wise. The wiki syntax parsing should not depend
on preferences. Data format should be stable.

Replacing is indeed a work around. Real solution would be to handle the
copy-paste such that you get the wanted result. E.g. use the "@", but
escape it such that it is not formatted as tag, or a "paste-as-verbatim"
function.

But first need to understand the way Paul is using these strings to judge
best direction.
