The 'Paste Special...' dialog is already standardized--that is the generalized
dialog handles non-Calc type clipboard formats consistently. Including its use
when pasting onto Calc sheets.
Only Calc cell/formula objects described in XML clipboard items are detected,
and trigger launch of the specialized Calc object 'Paste Special...' dialog.
It has been like that since OOo era--see no compelling reason to implement a
new dialog for the other modules.
