It would be unfortunate, as it is clobbering data.  Especially, it's
probably not visually obvious.

Text properties are currently fragile because they're often stripped
with calls of buffer-substring-no-properties and friends.  A lot of
that was done either before composition used text properties or
without considering it, and should be re-thought -- `-no-properties'
should typically be `-some-properties'.

I'm not sure how much trouble that can cause in practice when moving
text, but I think it needs attention.
