I wish you were right but, as far as I know you can only paste MathML
into Maple.
Copying first involves invoking a function that generates the MathML,
or using the "export as html" (where you can read the mathML-content
as applet params, oh glory!).
(note, this was in Maple 10 on Mac, there may be differences and
novelties in Maple 11 or 12)

with the usual incompatibilities... e.g. isn't there a few inverse
trigonometric functions which are incompatible and one of the two
exports a csymbol?
