Not allowing cut isn't really reasonable. If you want to prevent cut
from working completely, that's fine.
i.e. when i cut "15" (because i use cut instead of copy consistently),
then your web application is free to reset the value to the default,
but "15" should go into my clipboard.
When I select paste to restore my "15", it needs to work. You don't
have the right to mess with that.
