That's what I've been implementing.

I don't see an benefit in this. Whether we copy from the pristine or
the unmodified working we still have to make a copy. It might even be
more efficient to copy from the unmodified working where keywords/eols
are already expanded. Using the pristine would allow us to delay the
copy but that doesn't seem to be an advantage.
