M-wshould copy marked binary data to the clipboard
C-yshould insert contents of clipboard by overwriting, starting at cursor position
C-wshould overwrite the marked area with
DELshould set current byte to
hexl-mode-clear-valueand go to previous byte
hexl-mode-clear-value should be a customisable variable defaulting to
If Emacs is not in overwrite mode, copy/paste should work like plain text files, though this seems like low priority / undesirable since skewing binary data equals data corruption in most cases.
