Herb, Judging from the goals of the Linkback project, it seems like 
that issue would best be characterized as unrelated.
The only difference between a linkback object pasted into a document 
and a regular object is that the linkback object knows where it came 
from, and can update automatically.
Whether or not the application aligns that object correctly is a 
separate concern.
