As a Wikibooks user, I would like to see the feature "copy this page" (source, target) next to the move-feature. This would be great for normal user extending a book without touching the original one.
Example: Lets say you would like to improve a book about the programming language "Java". The book describes version 6 and you would like to start a new book on version 8. If it is worth having both books, than I see no way to preserve the original book and edit the text with respect to the original editors.
Example: Lets say two contributors have different but strong opinions about the future of a book. This typically leads to conflicts, where some user leave the community. The copy-the-page feature would be a good technical solution to settle the conflict.
