Probably because, in most cases, it simply doesn't matter, and the speed
improvement you get it worth the minor inconvenience.
As I posted before, at least one other CM system, namely Perforce, acts in
a similar manner. And there are several large systems under P4 control,
including Open Source ones (Perl, for instance).
I imagine that the protocol will work either way, so if it bothers enough
people, make it a run time configuration option.
