I think a better question is `Should tables (and more importantly,
_parts_ of tables) really remain "active" after yanking?'.  It sounds
rather annoying to me for the same reason that yanked keymap properties
usually are.

[BTW, if it's decided that this _is_ a good feature, please call the
property something like `yank-preserved-properties' (actually I'm rather
fond of `yankable-properties') and make it a list of property names or t.]


Fast, small, soon; pick any 2.
