Because you won't be able to change the file until the sticky tag is
removed.  A sticky tag means you have the file checked out on a particular
tag.  When you want to make changes they have to be on the HEAD or a branch.

When I'm reading articles/guides about CVS I notice that "removing sticky
tags" is often talked about.

I don't understand why you want to remove a sticky tag.
If (for example) you have files in a repository and they're
ready/checked/validated for release 1, then you tag them all with rel-1-0.
Why, in a further stadium, would I want to remove this tag?

Or perhaps I am confused about Tags and Sticky Tags.
