Yosemite + Numbers 3.5 format update: unsyncable files

Important note: this is different from previous sync issues related to file format, as the new Pages/Numbers/Keynote format has been updated (again!) to be a single ZIP file instead of a folder:
 
$ file /Users/lloeki/Drive/Gestion/budget.numbers
/Users/lloeki/Drive/Gestion/budget.numbers: Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract
 
Actual error message:
 
Upload error - an unknown issue has occurred
 
I noted that a file that used to sync correctly suddenly does not merely because it has been opened then closed in Numbers. I suspect this may be due to either metadata updates or autosave on close, possibly causing unsolvable conflicts for the Google Drive Sync app.

Apparently disabling versions for Apple apps seems to get sync to work:
 
defaults write com.apple.iWork.Keynote ApplePersistence -bool no
defaults write com.apple.iWork.Pages ApplePersistence -bool no
defaults write com.apple.iWork.Numbers ApplePersistence -bool no
defaults write com.apple.TextEdit ApplePersistence -bool no
defaults write com.apple.Preview ApplePersistence -bool no
 
Then create then edit a new document multiple times, and it syncs fine.
 
There is metadata or something (hardlinks?) on existing documents though, so they may need to be "saved as" under another name, and the original removed.
