just a small addition on AliasTrans from my side. Perhaps then it's a bit easier to understand, why it's not needed, when cloning documents.
As WickedP already mentioned, it helps to to relink things...
Let's assume you have a cube and an instance object, which is linked to the cube.
If you now take these two objects and make a copy of both of them by ctrl-dragging them in the Object Manager, you will get the following result: Two cubes and two instance objects, both of them linked to the first cube.
If you duplicate the two objects via Copy&Paste instead, the result will be a bit different. You will end up with two and the copy of the instance object will be linked to the copy of the cube.
This behavior is realized via AliasTrans. Relinking of BaseLinks inside of a document.
And as Cinema4D knows no "inter-document" links, there's no need for AliasTrans, when cloning documents.
