And again that would be silly---if we've already done our paste special, then
we are going to pop open a dialog, with icon or listing, to pick the format? 
And if we've done a simple <Ctrl>+V paste, we're going to be "pestered" with a
"what format do you want to paste"?

NO! Our existing mechanism for handling formatting of paste actions is elegant
and efficient.  The wording of labeling the available Paste Special formats [1]
can be made more meaningful as in bug 89543, otherwise the users need to learn
the tool. Pestering with a dialog just gets in the way of productive use--a
Microsoft trait.
