Yes, I don't see any reason why printable characters from a binary
file could not be pasted into another application.  Emacs has a way of
dealing with characters that cannot be safely put into the X selection
(it replaces them with `?'s or some such), if that's what you thought
could prevent copy-paste.

So I encourage you to report this as a bug.  Thanks.
