I understand that to mean that it's not a problem if I simply continue
using CVSNT and the advertisements go into the Emacs CVS logs.

It's the CVSNT people who added -M and explained it's use. They have a
FAQ about how to avoid the message, both in the client and the CVSNT
server; they even distribute (or are going to) a custom TortoiseCVS
that already uses -M. This is not a war, just a way (misguided or not)
of increasing visibility for their chosen business model.
