It is by design, but I have since changed my mind ;)
In the past I have used paste as a quick way to push the text to the
right of the caret (further to the right) -- i.e. instead of leaving
overwrite mode, pressing space, and entering it again, I could select
a space and copy/paste that.
The habit comes from an editor which (iirc) did not have a key to
toggle overwrite mode. In TM there is really no advantage to using
copy/paste over toggling overwrite mode.
