I'm not a koji dev but here's roughly what would need to happen:

1) koji gets request to build HEAD.
2) koji checks out HEAD and records the cvs versions of each file that
corresponds to.
3) koji scratch builds and associates the version info with the scratch
4) Package maintainer gets back a success on the scratch build.
Installs and tests.
5) Package maintainer requests that koji mark scratch build as non-scratch.
6) koji checks out the versions of the files that it has recorded for
that scratch build.
7) koji attempts to tag the files with the proper immutable build tag.
8a) on success, koji changes the db records so the input comes from the
tag instead of the collection of versions for the files.
8b) on failure (for instance, someone else has used that tag), koji
tells the package maintainer it was unable to move the scratch build to
the tag.
