ref commission advice

Before I start, I'm gonna say that I understand that every artist does things differently and I should always check their TOS before commissioning them. But I'm asking for advice on these things in a "is this normal/customary" kind of way.

I've never commissioned a ref sheet before and I'm not sure how to go about it because of two big questions I have.
  1. It's pretty common to see clean and dirty versions of ref sheets. If I wanted both, would I have to pay extra to get two copies...? Did you have to pay extra for both copies?
  2. Is it considered...impolite or rude to ask for a .psd/.sai file of your ref sheet? For example if later you want to change the text because you edited the character. If not would this cost extra too usually?
Any advice on this would be appreciated, like I said I know everyone is different but I want to see if there's a general consensus.

1. I personally charge the base price for the ref.sheet and then just add a little fee to it since I am drawing the "extra bits." I just take the tame/non-nude lineart and draw in the naughty parts, so I'm not redrawing the whole thing, so it's quicker and cheaper that way.

2. Going with Fetalstar here, I'd also be willing to give a semi-merged .PSD in a slightly lower resolution. But for me this is just to protect my art from being edited to a degree and/or printed out/sold/claimed to be theirs since they have the .PSD file, etc. I normally don't give the commissioner the .PSD files so asking beforehand would be great.
