Annoying change to SharePoint Person columns

Up until recently you could copy the entire contents of a multi-selectable person column from one SharePoint list/library item to another by pressing the button to switch the entire input array and specifying the source item column name from dynamic content.




But now this fails at run time like this:


Microsoft have significantly broken things by making those properties of the person column read-only, so this is an appeal to Microsoft to reverse this craziness and allow us to patch in a complete person object into a person column without having to remove properties.
