I don't think so. Each resource has its own version history (the history 
records property changes, content changes and it is also possible to 
undelete deleted resources).

Maybe your question comes from thinking about source code management 
systems: There is no such thing as a global revision ID for a folder or 
the whole file system which increases whenever something below changes - 
rather each resource has its own history. The maximum history  depth can 
be configured.

Yes, copying is not a problem. You can make actual copies and 
alternatively you can create siblings, which are like hard links in Unix 
file systems (i.e. one file of content can have more than one file 
system descriptor and thus more than one file name in opencms).
