Perhaps not cut/paste, but copy is probably one of the most used tools in a
browser's toolbar, other than back/forward. Both my wife (non-techie) and I
use it very heavily to copy text from web pages and paste into email /
instant messages / word processors / etc. If the argument is that
non-primary functions don't go into the toolbar, then cut and paste can be
removed, but I don't see how copy can be removed. Only people with
photographic memory and no need to communicate don't use copy.
