Actually that's a good meta-strategy as well, if you have the disk
space.  Keep the things in their original form in one place, and
operate on a copy, if there's any possibility that information will be
lost in the translation.  For example, keeping an original email
around may let you do a forensic analysis on it, which you couldn't do
if you just saved the contents.  This is also true of PGP signatures
on tar files, and stuff like that.
