It might well be that CC was started from the idea about dynamic
views, but I certainly don't see that as a source for endless
problems. Rather, I see it as a brilliant and powerful idea that
allows the tool to solve certain problems in very interesting ways.

Only if that is what you want. You have full control of when other
peoples updates should become visible in your own view.

There's both restricted and unrestricted checkouts, so there's no need
to lock anything if you don't want to.

As for the rest of your story, if it is based on real experience with
CC, I can just imagine that you must have been bitten badly by the
"bad process" syndrome.
