If everyone is simply used to locking every file before editing, they
will find out about lock conflicts without the need for svn:needs-lock
to enforce the lock-before-edit requirement on them.

Also, even if it doesn't protect anyone else, locking a file still
protects you. If you've informed everyone else through some other
mechanism, then you might consider it their problem if they forget.
