Of course not. Keep the original post, and create incremental diffs 
along the edit path. Mark the diffs as approved or not.

I'm not saying it should be super duper or anything, but it shouldn't be 
anything along the lines of "quick fix" for a problem (which is probably 
small) like this. If some kind of versioning system were to be put in 
place, why go half way?

I would believe that most people are running WP single user, and those 
that are running multiuser are likely trusted -- the writer/editor 
feature set is very powerful in a few cases, but not the majority. So 
including a half-implemented versioning system for a minority feature 
doesn't seem like a great idea. Not yet.
