    To me, that sounds about right: If a text property was added by Emacs,
    ie. font-lock, then chances are high that in another buffer the text
    properties will be lost anyway (after saving and reloading, or when
    the font-lock for the new buffer kicks in).  In this case, we might as
    well remove the text-properties anyway.

That is a good point.  Perhaps therefore font-lock should create
overlays rather than text properties.  Overlays are not part of the
text, and won't be copied when the text is copied.
