The thing is, the default properties of a password field are already handled correctly by the browser...allow paste, but not copy/cut. I can't think of a single reason why pasting should not be allowed for a password field.

Well, that's the real beauty of it to me. I wrote my own password manager, like I'm sure a lot of others here have done. I haven't had to type a username or password in years for most of the websites being managed. My process goes like this:
0: start the password manager and login
1: click the desired website from a list
2: click a button to copy the username to the clipboard
3: launch the site and paste in username
4: click a button to copy the password to the clipboard
5: paste into the password field and login. Done!

I refuse to let any browser remember my login credentials for any website, though they continue to ask.

Everything's stored in a password protected sqlce database, which works great since I can share it between multiple computers, and even use it on my laptop when away from the office.
