Chris - the above scenario is very similar to a use case I have:
Chris, my question is how do you add the new PDF file that includes the wet-ink signature, to Rev A when Rev B (or later) may be in existence? Rev A will not be re-released.
Assuming that this PDF is going to be added as a Relationship to Rev A and not as an item property of Rev A, you should be able to manually create the Relationship item and set the source_id of that new Relationship to the ID of Rev A.
Adding a Relationship in this way does not require editing or locking the parent item, so you shouldn't run into any issues.

Thanks for your response. I will test the process and report the results.
I successfully created the relationship between a non-latest Document revision and a new File object. The process was:
1. As admin, create a new File object (Administration -> File Handling -> Files)
2 As root using AML, create the new relationship
<Item type="Document File" action="add">
1. Is root the only identity that can create the relationship in this situation?
2. Can the GUI be used to create the relationship?
