I've been tackling a similar problem. In my plugin TDO Mini Forms
which I'm trying to add editing functionality right now, I'm trying to
add moderation for it. So what I've done is that the edits go to a
fresh revision and an admin can do a diff on latest and this edited
revision before approving it, where the plugin will then make this
revision the current one.

However, I'm assuming in your case, you'd like to use the Wordpress
editing UI to do something similar, which I'm not sure about. Can the
Wordpress post edit screen be used to modify a revision instead of an
actual post?
