No. There are good reason for this special value. And it isn't used only
for copy-file. Please don't change it yourself.

A better aproach might be to investigate, how you have invoked
copy-file. I suppose you haven't called it directly, but rather
indirectly in dired or so. Maybe there is an option to use current-time
for the copy target.

Best regards, Michael.
