I think it's good the question is raised.

It highlights the difficulty people have in wrapping their heads around FCPX function and workflow. As Mark says, you duplicate your project just as you duplicate a sequence to "version" it. Of course depending on your approach, you could have lots of Auditions attached if you're primarily looking to have alternate takes to a single project.

Another thing this highlights is that so much of training focuses on "how to" with various functions and very little of it focuses on workflow development.

Organizing a workflow for a documentary with nearly everything shot (think historical maybe) vs a documentary that will be getting material ongoing over two years, may be different. Certainly it may be different than an episodic series and even that may be different depending on how self contained vs related the episodes are. That would be different than a corporate video in which new versions may happen every few months from the same source video but with newly shot material added with each update.

Even the saving of "sub edits" gives you various choices. Mentioned already is duplicating the project. Another could be saving the project as a Compound Clip which would then keep the copy in the Event Library. You could then create a new project and make that independent (this is all new in 10.0.6 forward).
