I have been able to reproduce this issue with allowedContent : true only.

Ok, there is an error thrown but this example is very non-standard to say the least. Why did you turn off ACF and why are you using non-html tags inside HTML editor? Is there any real-life use case behind this?

I know <o:p> tags are MS Word tags but they are removed by ACF and paste from word filter. At the moment it just looks like you have troubled yourself to create configuration so bad that it results in error when performing non-standard action.

We use the editor to create and display emails ( also external ) , with allowContent : false, the email will be modified and the view does not resemble the original mail in many cases

I have discussed this issue with my colleagues and we have to consider it a "won't fix" issue.

First of all CKEditor is HTML and not XML editor. Second is that there might be 1000 other cases like that one. ACF and pastefromword filter prevent that from happening.
I personally think it would be much better if you turn on ACF and extend it accordingly to your needs so that it allows entering a predefined set of tags, attributes, styles and perhaps classes.

Some parts of pasted content may be changed, especially if they are created with some weak tools which don't follow HTML specification. You can however control what gets removed by defining what is allowed. Users will also have ability to fix their content using CKEditor features and such email should be displayed properly in email client.

I personally think this is much better than allowing your users to paste every junk HTML there is. With such "HTML", emails may not look as intended in email client.
