Atomicity of locks and needs-lock

Would anybody object to, or favor this idea?

When somebody tries to lock a file that doesn't have needs-lock on it,
atomically also add the needs-lock property. Conceptually, as far as I
know by all accounts, it makes no sense to ever lock a file that doesn't
needslock.

Currently, when a person commits, it atomically will
Commit-and-ReleaseLock. So I hope it's not objectionable to provide an
atomic way to lock-and-needslock.
