Comment (by dd32):

 This firmly feels like plugin material for now to me.

 Although it's useful to a lot of people, it's potentially not useful for a
 large majority of the WordPress users out there.
 For example, a plugin with 900k downloads probably only has 50% of those
 still as actual installs, so lets go conservative and say 600k active
 installs of the plugin, if you assume the 60million WordPress sites are
 split 50/50 between WordPress.com (which has a similar feature) and
 WordPress.org, that's about 2% of WordPress.org sites having the plugin
 active, and then there's how many posts are published using the copy-post
 feature vs writing a new post..

 So that's my reasoning, a plugin that is used by a small percentage of
 users is probably best left as a plugin. Those who need the functionality
 can still get it, and those who don't need it, don't need the extra UI.
