working areas

    We seem to have two different styles to working with CVS here and I want to know what the standard is in the community.
    One group says that you never ever change your working area. You just do updates and keep working on.  The other group says you should change your working area and start with a fresh checkout.  I agree with the second group.  I like the idea of always starting a task with a fresh clean checkout.  I think work areas should be temporary and be deleted when you are done with a task.  The first group says that if you do that you will break traceability of changes and that it is hard to keep track of your work areas.  My thought is that if you are committing your changes then there is nothing to worry about. CVS will track it for you.  
   Please, I do not want to start a flame war, I just want to hear how some of the other places that use CVS resolve this issue.
