Yes, yes, possibly
Just something I've noticed, which is obvious, but I didn't thought about, and 
which has probably no bearing:
1- click on the bookmarklet
2- `C-c C-l Ret Ret` in an org-buffer, so the link is created (this step not 
necessary though)
3- if you do `C-y` you can see the URL is in the kill-ring
But obviously there is no reason for this URL to be also in the Wayland (or 
x11) clipboard? (there is no law of nature saying that what is in emacs kill-
ring must necessarily also be in wayland clipboard. I think there is a law of 
nature for the other way around though)
In any case, in the case of Kde/Kwin/Wayland, it is not copied in the Wayland 
Maybe it's in the description of org-protocol/store-link that the URL should 
be copied in emacs kill-ring, in any case, it is.
But no it doesn't show in the kde/wayland clipboard (and why would it).

Right, right, right
I was only trying to see if there was something obviously sticking out about 
the cut and paste issue.
So you say "new style URIs are parsed before they are passed to subprotocol 
handler": so, no worries then.
Thanks a lot for saying so. I've been searching but haven't found were they 
were parsed. I've probably haven't searched enough, and anyway it's of no 
bearing. Thanks again.
