This is all about user experience, i am asking this for the JBoss Portal CMS 
based on Jackrabbit and to be honnest with you i am not sure what the user 
would want to do by copying.
As of today, all files are versioned but only one is publicly available (a 
tagged version). It means that you can have your live revision that is not 
the latest revision, when you copy that file, i think the end-user will 
expect to copy the live revision.

It a more general manner, copying a tagged revision of a tree could be an 
interesting feature to propose. I am new to CMS and probably have some weird 
ideas in that field.

Thanks for your interest David.
