Yes, in fact, in environments I've been in that avoided unreserved
checkouts at all costs, one developer started modifying a copy of the file
that was locked.  After the file was checked in, the developer checked the
file out, copied his version over it, and checked it in thereby wiping out
the other developer's changes.

The moral: Developers will seek concurrent development even though they
don't know how to do it properly.  It's much better if the tool and
procedures allow concurrent development.
