Ah! well - to prevent users from mistakenly doing checkins to a branch,
along which you do not want any development to happen. This happens
especially in large, geographically distributed teams when people tend to
forget that checkins are not permitted along certain branches for various
reasons - like product released from that branch is End-of-Lifed or that
branch was created to do some experimental coding on a particular module
etc. There possibly are various ways of spreading this information among the
team members and have other methods of enforcing them - but "locking down"
branches happens to be a very convenient one.
