You need to try harder to follow your own advice.

Sometimes the user does want to add the file to his local workspace even
though it would be refused at commit time, or even though it might cause
a conflict with some other user's added file at update time.

(that's "_ALWAYS_" in my own case, actually)

Exactly, so if I want "cvs update" to show my locally added files then
that's my business -- just as I can make changes to existing files that
the commitinfo script might also reject.

"cvs add" and "cvs rm" are no different than "vi" -- they make changes
in the local workspace and when they are used is NONE OF YOUR CONCERN.

If _YOU_ want a "cvs add" check against repostitory rules in _YOUR_ shop
then _YOU_ can add YOUR OWN PRIVATE wrapper script that implements that
check for _YOUR_ users and _YOUR_ users _ALONE_.
