You might want to consider useing 60 mill reinforced epdm steps as well,they seal around the nail you fasten them in with very well.
Lead coated steps do work quite well also, but are much more expensive.

As you indicated, you could do a simple 16 oz (which would sit better) copper step flashing as you work your way back up along the hip or 4lb lead step flashing. There are pictures for a more complex hip finish at:

What would you do if you found no flashing under your miter hip? The hip only had slate cement under the slate. There are signs of water damage in side on the hip rafters not alot but stains. you can see what I have done with the pictures here. The skyligth was leaking and was to much for a restoration of the skyligth compare to the 1 in boards and reclaimed Monson slate to be use after the church desides what to do with the hips. I plan on installing 20 oz copper or lead flashing depending on what the church OK's. The wood is fine besides some areas with a little dry rot.
