    Is it generally a good idea not to copy keymap text property?

Yes--very much so.  In most cases that leads to very confusing

What's correct to do for yanking a table?  Yanking the whole table
ought to preserve its properties so that the table still functions as
one.  Yanking a part of the table which can act as a complete table in
itself should also do that.  However, yanking some of the text within
the table, which is less than a whole table entry, should forget that
it came from a table and treat it like any ordinary text.

Does that make sense to you?  If so, can you look for a design to
achieve those results?
