Question about copy-region-as-kill

Why does this function use `buffer-substring' instead of
`buffer-substring-no-properties'?  Isn't this just a historical flaw,
from when the latter function didn't exist?

I can't think of when I *ever* want properties copied to my kill ring.
Can we just change this, and thus obviate the primary reason why
people use overlays?
