Process Builder - Allow Editing a Deactivated Process or allow "versions"

Process Automation

The Process Builder currently does not allow you to edit a deactivated process. The user must deactivate and "Save As" a new Process in order to make changes.

This can be problematic when building a process and testing it. Each process has to have a unique name and following a standard naming convention becomes very challenging when you have to repeated create new processes to make fixes or updates. 

This is compounded since even after a deactivate process is deleted (after 12 hours) salesforce continues to treat that unique name as "taken" and does not allow you to recylce a unique name for a process.

I should be able to edit a process when it's deactivated or allow for multiple versions of the same process similar to how Visual Workflow operates.
