Martin, I didn't manage to understand the condition you are testing:

(and (>= start point-to-paste)
     (<= point-to-paste (+ start (car size))))))))

If the first condition is true, the second will also be true (if
point-to-paste is smaller than start, point-to-paste will also be
smaller than start plus a positive integer).

to keep this behaviour in future versions of

I also agree with this, it is tidier to leave the optional operation
at the end.

I'll check if I can come up with a better solution that best fits the
points that have been discussed above. If I can't, I'll check how
complex it would be to implement this special case at the end.
