Would definitely be against such a large size like you have in your mockup, but
a smaller one like MSO[1] does make sense only when pasting with Ctrl+V, as it
would bring attention to other pasting options for beginners, though dont
forget some people will be annoyed by it[2].

Most novice users will paste as is and change it to their liking, while others
who dont want the default pasting will likely paste unformatted text and then
change it to how they like it.

That will hopefully be dealt with in bug 89453.

Merge has been suggested in bug 83102.

Could be implemented as a floating toolbar with a single button in it, but devs
would have to see what is feasible.

Personally I agree with you and believe this should be closed as WONTFIX, but
if a dev wants to take it on, we shouldnt stop them from doing it, as it does
have some benefit for new users.
