Why?  Rationale?  

Pasting into a password dialog is perfectly valid.

Only cut/copying out of a dialog is not valid.

Your new password is asdfasdf3565y235afg.  Please enter it.

This bug is invalid.

Also, getting rid of paste could potentially impact Autofill operation.

Pasting your password into the password field is valid.
