I'm trying to figure out, as an SCM person, what this accomplishes.

In my experience, knowing each little test change that gets commit is
invaluable information.  When tracking down problems, being able to see
hourly or minutely check in comments/diffs provide a useful insight into
the developer at the time of those changes.

Granted, if they interfere with a build, that is a bad thing.  But you can
put those on a branch, and merge onto the build branch as necessary.
