Probably not. If the content changes are simple, cloning to a new
workspace is overkill. Workspace cloning is more like branching in
CVS, when you want to have a separate copy with the same history for a
longer period of time (or even forever). Although I personally have
never used workspace cloning so far, maybe someone else has a good use
case for them, and maybe similar to yours.

The main use case for workspaces is to separate your content. In a
typical CMS you could have a "main" workspace, a "staging" and a
"public" workspace, each with the same internal structure. The good
thing is that it is just a configuration change in your application
which workspace you want to view, since the workspace is selected
inside the JCR login.
