It'd be great to be able to save locally the edited version of the photo rather than the original version before you've touched it up

You can. It’s called ‘export’. Lightroom is a non-destructive editor. That means that the edits are not applied to the image, but stored separately as a kind of ‘to do list’. If you want to save the image with the edits applied to it, you need to save a copy. You can’t save the edited original, because there is no edited original.
