That was my first reaction as well.  However IMHO this theory is incorrect.

1. I check out a file.
2. I build the .o file
3. I make changes to the file.
4. I realise I made a mistake in the changes, so I remove the file and do an
5. make will now do an unnecessary rebuild of my .o file

Only I can make decision as to whether the make needs to rebuild the .o file
and the best way for me to make the decision is to manually remove the .o
file if it needs rebuilding!  This rebuild could have knock on effects
throughout the rest of the developers sandbox.
