You're wrong :-)

'edit -c' checks that no other users are editing the file.
'commit -c' is supposed to check that you have done 'cvs edit' before (i.e. you have not just removed the read-only attribute), but the code to do this is actually not implemented, at least not when I checked a few weeks ago.
