I can confirm that pasting an image with a Transparent part it will loose
transparency.

This is not unexpected since the only option available in Paste As is Bitmap so
I assume that using simple Paste will use the only option available. A Bitmap
doesn't have alpha channels...

This is a limitation of the way LO handles the Windows clipboard.

When pasting the same image in MS Office with Paste As in addition to Bitmap
you get Picture (PNG), which is selected by default, and Device Independent
Bitmap.

This feature is quite important when transferring images using the clipboard.
