I would strongly support the argument against it.
In many applications (and most of the ones I use) deletion, whether by over
typing or using the Delete key, is separate from the clipboard.
The only thing I use where deleted or over typed text goes to the clipboard
is Pluto, and it is extremely annoying. Even though I know about it, I
still trip up from time to time.
