I would say the receiving application should implement "paste special" to
offer alternative formats. How the copy-paste protocol works, the sending
application just offers all formats it can handle, while the receiving
application decides what format to request in a particular context.

That being said we could enforce this by just offering a very limited set of
formats. Not sure why we would want that though. Feel free to make it a
hidden option, all the relevant code is in zim/gui/clipboard.py and the
config interface is in zim/config.py.
