Regardless, the definitive copy will likely trump the rehearsal script in terms of canon; it will be interesting to see how much they differ. I also wonder how spoilers will be handled: one would expect more leaks with a play being rehearsed than a novel being printed.
It was confirmed in the original press release that the Special Rehearsal Edition will only be available for a limited time and that it will be "replaced" by the Definitive Collector's Edition at a later time.

I'm assuming that the whole play's plot will be available online for anyone who wants to know about it by the end of May, which is when public previews will start. It's gonna be hard to avoid spoilers.
