I have repeatedly found it useful, even in recent times, to cut/paste
ASCII-armored messages on my mobile. Am I a Neanderthal?

No!  This was exactly my first thought also. ASCII Armor format is
extremely useful for passing the messages from app-to-app via the system
clipboard using copy-and-paste.  As a mobile PGP developer, there are
situations where this is the most convenient way to move the PGP
message/key from a non-PGP enabled app (like most standard mobile mail
clients) and into an app that can decode/decrypt it correctly.

If ASCII Armor is to be deprecated, I would hope that we at least replace
it with something else that can be easily copied-and-pasted.
