Perfectly well thought out. The only reason they've added it, frankly, is because of the degree to which it became a common way of poking fun. The iPhone UI is actually worse now, for the addition of it.

Which is to say, for most common user tasks c&p is unnecessary. It's an edge case, which they consciously lost from functionality in order to get an optimized usage path on touch screen use. Which has been compromised in the current incarnation, but such is life.

What's funny to me is that Thorf provides discussion around exactly this point in his original post, but still people feel the need to jump in and say "Hur hur! Cut and Paste!" - which simply illustrates that there's a huge portion of the audience who can't differentiate between features and usability.

Whereas the market can (and does) - people tend to prefer the more usable approach. The funny thing is, they're unable to articulate why they prefer it - which leads to people calling them "stupid" and "zealot" - whereas they're actually simply pleased with a computer that works in a way they understand.
