    But even if you manage to just copy part of the string,
    the full image is still inserted when you yank it back...

That is true.  And perhaps it's a misfeature.  Maybe you should
not see the image unless you yank the whole of the text
that it belongs on.

Perhaps the yank handler should check that all the text is present,
and only reestablish the image property when that is the case.
Until then, it could record the property's value under another name
so that it won't get lost.

Using a pair of other properties, one to mark the first char of the image
and one on the last char, could make it possible to tell when the whole
text is present.

What do you think?
