You missed the big warning in the manual that says not to do that. :-)

Basically, the problem is that if you modify the data at the server,
then what the client sent is not what is committed. This is misleading,
confusing, and generally a Bad Thing(tm).

What you can do is examine the file and reject the commit if it does not
meet local standards.
