I agree with Stefan's proposal.  (I would get rid of "omit" as well).

Cheers,
Geoff

The issues I have with keepAlive are
a) how does the client know which property is live in the first place?
b) deltaV copy semantics forbid using keepAlive on version properties
c) If the destination is on another server, WebDAV has no means to
   fulfill keepAlive. It is not possible to know if the remote server
   knows the requested live props.
d) Is there any server/client using it? (I have not seen any)

I would propose to 
1) remove keepalive, maybe allow omit
2) change default copy behaviour to _not_ copy live properties
