Indeed, if your markup is implicit, it's a hard problem because the user
can't actually see what he's selected for copy&paste.

If it's explicit in the form of markup commands (as is the case in
tex-mode), then it's a non-issue (i.e. it's now an issue for the user
rather than for the word processor.  And that's good, because the user
hopefully knows what he wants, whereas the word processor can't guess).
