    Again, it depends...  E.g. if we enhance RMAIL to show small icons
    for unread or urgent messages (or whatever), we don't want to copy
    those images -- but if a mail message contains an image, we would
    (probably) want to copy that (as an image).

"Enhance RMAIL to show icons" is not a clear  description of a scenario.
Where would these icons go?  In which buffer?

    Can't think of any, but I suppose there will be those 10% of special
    cases which will never fit (entirely) into a specific category.

Talking about the possibility of unknown whatever does not help
sharpen the analysis.  Are there any interesting cases that you can
think of now?

    But what about (also) having a user command:


I dislike it very much.  It is far better to have a convenient
way to clear out text properties from the region.
