A clipboard manager was in Lubuntu at one time.  When we were looking at what we could get rid of nobody was using it, so out it went.  I think it's one of those things that a few people know about and use but not essential to a distro.

As for guidelines.  The simple answer is - is it needed.  The point of a this distro is to supply the basic functions for everyday use.  Other distros, such as Ubuntu Studio, are the same but more specialised.  In the case of Studio it is to supply a basic but functional music and/or art studio.
