Kind of, but only if you follow slightly different steps when creating the automation
After drawing your events in the events editor, don't do the turn into automation clip thing. Instead, navigate in the browser to current project -> patterns -> whatever pattern your event is in. The entry inside with a knob symbol in front is your events data. (If you click it, the events editor will open/close.)
Right click on the entry and click create automation clip. This will create a clip, but also preserve the original events data in case you want to modify it later. Just make sure you delete the events data (ctrl-a then the delete key while inside the events editor) after you've finalized your automation.
