Well, I'm of the opinion that one shouldn't bother trying to use a client/server application while one is disconnected. :-) Systems like Monotone are better for what you're trying to do, where you can keep a local repository that syncs with others at appropriate times.

Perhaps a -C option to `cvs add' similar to `cvs edit', where -C can
be placed in the user's .cvsrc for the add command and the add will
not be allowed unless the server contact and verification is successful.

If you're going to use triggers to enforce policy, then the user really shouldn't have the option to turn them off. Triggerable events should fire the triggers in a reliable way or else there's no point to them and they should in fact be removed on the basis that they only add cruft.

Deferring them is okay, even as a client-side option, provided the user can't defeat them completely and the user is willing to accept the risk of lost work during the deferment period.
