I have sent the following bug report to

There is copy-rectangle-to-register but no mechanism to copy
rectangle to kill ring which can be pasted using 

C-x r y (i.e. yank-rectangle)

However there is no kill-rectangle-save which is along the lines of
kill-ring-save except it applies to rectangle.

Proposed key binding:

C-x r M-w.
