Having developed and managed development of just these sorts of web
applications, I would completely disagree. Ideal situation BY FAR
is to have a web server PER DEVELOPER, with documents and applications
in WCs PER DEVELOPER. DB per developer is ideal as well, but
is sometimes too difficult to implement mid project.

But, you can certainly develop any way you choose.

What is the difficulty of having a local WC on each developers box, and
having them edit and move files (either way!),
and commit when they're finished?

If you have any sort of shared WC, then you're going to run into all
sorts of (potential) development conflicts where
people can (and will?) lose work.
