I guess he'd rather use the same function which discriminates by some
other means between the two uses.

Alternatively, one could put explicit keyboard help strings into the
menus (or have some property for that purpose on the function?).  One
might assume that the people with actual "<cut>", "<paste>", "<copy>"
keys would still try using them without being prompted for them.
