It's all too easy to miss that someone else has updated your pet package with good stuff and plough on loosing their changes in the mists of time. I vote for keeping the check-in. It doesn't stop you form committing but has the huge advantage of knowing that a merge might be in your future.

This depends on the usage style I think. You can use Monticello in "distributed" style where there is no clear head, or "linear" style where the highest-numbered revision is significant. The Trunk's update mechanism uses the latter so I find the warning useful in that setting.
