I think it make some sense to design this as a map tool (if possible).
We don't have a simplify action, it's a map tool.

It could still be possible to add a custom action which will use the API to
duplicate the feature (if one really wants this feature as an action in the
form or attribute table or identify menu).

Enhancing the action API to define action on editable layers only sounds
like a good addition too, but I think is not sufficient here (taking the
simplify map tool as example).

My 2 cts.
