If you read the manual you'll see that you can still do this:

  normal `xterm' mouse functionality for such clicks is still available
  by holding down the `SHIFT' key when you press the mouse button.

When running in terminal, Emacs doesn't communicate with the Xserver (although
xterm may).  This means that it can be invoked remotely even when X isn't
allowed over the connection.  If the connection can use X and you want to
use the clipboard-* functions why not just run it as an X application?
