I must say I do not understand.  It seems your opinion is covered in the
above.  Except for the details of what happens where there's both
a CLIPBOARD and a PRIMARY selection (and they're different, of course)
which is neither mentioned nor ruled out.

PS: For the rest I agree whole heartedly.  Been through the pain of trying
cut&paste and have it fail unexplicably (at least until I figured that
one app uses CLIPBOARD and the other PRIMARY etc...).
I also tend to agree with your rant about freedesktop.
