This is a no brainer if you ask me.

Making a copy of a page, using it as a mockup for discussion is a real 
basis for discussion.
Making the change to the live site and asking after the fact -- "what 
do people think" is not.
Think about new users visiting the site. If the structure, navigation 
and positioning of content changes on a daily or weekly basis they will 
be more than a little confused.
