Try and express it in business terms.  What is the value to the business
to have this "feature".

Generally CVS is designed on the principle of enabling users - and I see
such an options as "dumbing the user down".  Again - speaking very
generally - you treat someone like a simpleton and they then begin
acting like a simpleton, you treat someone as a smart adult and they
start acting like a mart adult.

At a more practical level, if you did this and the user started to
create reports on the repository for changes to "all branches" they'd
get awfully confused when they saw all their changes appearing on
another branch not the trunk.
