Since you're not manipulating past commits or non-master branches, 
that's fine for this package, yes.

Yes, absolutely.

No, you're right; the PKGBUILD-git.proto uses

   rm -rf "$srcdir/$_gitname-build"
   git clone "$srcdir/$_gitname" "$srcdir/$_gitname-build"
   cd "$srcdir/$_gitname-build"

which doesn't use relative paths; however, since your PKGBUILD does use 
relative paths, removing the parentheses will cause it to not build when 
the .git dir already exists.
