Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
We want to be able to ensure users do not paste unexpected markup in Bard fields.

Describe the solution you'd like
A good solution would be a whitelist where specific tags and specific attributes (per tag) can be allowed and everything else is stripped when pasting text.

Describe alternatives you've considered
Via Bard's paste configuration variable we can provide a blacklist of tags to strip from pasted content: This proved imperfect when we found Grammarly markup (<g>) in our content files.
There is also which strips attributes, but you're not able to allow e.g. href and alt as attributes on a tags but nowhere else.

Additional context
Ideally, it would be possible to define this whitelist in YAML and it would be applied on paste in the browser and also in the fieldtype's process() PHP method.

Adding to what I wrote above, a workaround we use for now is a custom MediumEditor extension that overwrites the official paste extension's cleanPaste function to use, which supports whitelisting the way we would like to see in Bard.
