Well, think about it, if actual concurrent development occurs rarely, then
there's not much harm in telling users right away that there's someone else
editing the file.  Also, this process works for both non-mergable and mergable
files whereas the usual way may cause problems with non-mergable files.

Oh, yeah, regarding changing "cvs edit" so that it enforces mandatory locks,
"cvs ci" will also need to enforce them.  Even then, nothing really prevents
users from circumventing the system (even when using straight RCS).
