I think that anything you have should be consistant with what's there.
Just make it a straight copy if the revision is needed.

If you worry about building cached revisions yourself, you have to start
worrying about crossing versions and possibly even crossing archives,
which starts leading to questions with no right answers. For example,
what about version C/D dependant upon verison A/B, but A/B no longer
exists. If you copy across the cacherev, you're good to go. But if you
try and build the cacherev yourself, you may not be able to do it.
