Typically 'tmp' is empty but both 'cur' and 'new' are full of messages. How does kmail (or akonadi?) assign messages to 'cur' or 'new'? If it arbitrarily shifts messages from one to the other then my copying idea will likely result in numerous duplicate messages.

It's the standard Maildir format. 'new' has unread messages, 'cur' has read messages. They will be moved between folders when you mark messages as read or unread.
