What about them?  I don't think that either is a problem (e.g.,
"illegal state").  But I'll be glad to be shown wrong.

`Edit > Paste from Kill Menu' won't be emptied too, but there
is no problem with that, AFAIK.

If you are worried, do this instead:

(setq kill-ring-max 1)
Copy some text.
(setq kill-ring-max 60) ; or whatever
