Most of the stuff you would like to do when using midas could be made if you had
access to a temporary clipboard. This way you didn't need to care about security.

Can you be more specific?  What stuff "would you like to do"?

I'm not so sure what this bug is about.  Often I am copy/pasting material from
other web pages or other applications so a temporary clipboard wouldn't be
useful to me.  Henrik Gemal--can you elaborate?

Recently, I start to implement html editor. I realize that the Paste could be
security problem. I suggest that Mozilla Paste should be current way and do not
need temparary buffer. Instead, implement new command 
execCommand("Insert", false, "a html fragment")
execCommand("Replace", false, "a html fragment").

Therefore, I can change table layout/attribute and still get undo/redo work.
