In case the user enters M-x apropos RET paste RET, it would make more
sense if the response is an informative message:

 Note: Emacs uses the term "yank" for pasting text into a buffer.

It could then offer to search using "yank" instead of "paste".

This would have the benefit of teaching the user the proper terms.
