Rant: reliance on CSS

In the past, I've heard this "justified" with <but we're talking about EPUB, and CSS support is mandatory for conformant EPUB reading systems>. But in this case, I think it would also break copy+paste.

If I want to copy a few short verses into an email to a friend, copy+paste will only see the selected HTML, right? It's not guaranteed to see the CSS that sets margins for each stanza.
