What percentage of those users use the context menu for clipboard? Do these
users know that clipboard functions are available in multiple locations? Do
these users know how to copy and paste in other applications that dont have
clipboard buttons?

Paste special is now in the context menu thanks to Cor. :D

No doubt these are basic icons, but these basic features can be operated in 5
different ways - 1) edit menu, 2) toolbar buttons, 3) shortcut keys, 4) context
menu, 5) drag and drop. Othe basic icons like open, save, and print can only be
activated in 3 ways (menu, toolbar, shortcut key). So eliminating the less used
method of accessing the clipboard functions from the toolbar is a benefit to
everyone, as it allows other highly used buttons functions to be added which
users primarily go into the menu to access.

Yes they are indifferent of the change, which means less people to yell at us
for the change. :D
