Oh yeah... you're right about that. Global copies would freak out. But still, I think it'd be a cool to have a "Copy Attributes" toggle, just in case you really don't want to copy an entire branch but still need attribute-level copying. Sound good? (I had actually thought this was the way the copy functions already worked before this discussion came up - learn something new every day)
