Check in/Check out should be an option, why don't we use lock's on documents?

Why don't we make Check in/Check out optional?


Example with document locks and without Check in/Check out:

I'm working on a fast network and data loading is not an issue.

Why do I need to Check out then?

I just want to (automatically) lock the documents I'm working on and I do not want the hassle of Check in/Check out.

So, when I hit the Save button everything is saved into Vault.


Example with Check in/Check out:

- When I'm going to work on site, I can just check out all documents I need and when I'm back I can check in all these documents.

- when I'm working at home trough a "slow" internet connection, I do not want all the traffic every time I save something, then I need to use check out at the beginning of my work and check in when I'm done.


This can be a user setting but also needs to be a admin setting to overrule users.
