I guess a lot depends on what "pristine" means here.

You could have multiple copies of .emacs to achieve various states, I
think but then you will need to define /all/ the variables to their
default values at least in some of those files explicitly so they can be
reset from whatever you have set them to.  A variable not set in .emacs
would stay at it's set value (whether set by another copy of .emacs or
manually.)  In reality I have never needed to so I may not even fully
understand your issue and if any of what I said made sense. :-/
