Nautilus is already inconsistent to this behavior, because after
cutting, a file does NOT immediately vanish. It will vanish only after
it was pasted somewhere else, so it makes sense that you can paste files
only once (it acts more like a move operation). I believe that this
inconsistency was one of the reasons why the original Nautilus did not
have cut/copy/paste. As long as Nautilus is behaving like this (and I
don't see how it could behave differently in a logical way), dimming the
paste item after pasting is certainly correct.
