The POSIX standard on this is here:

http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/utilities/cp.html

The standard itself is silent on hard links as far as its prescriptions are
concerned, but in the Rationale section it says that cp does NOT maintain the
hard-link structure of the source, contrasting this with the operation of pax.
