If you only can spend a few minutes at a time when doing this (and I do), you 
write ChangeLogs when doing the work because they will conflict on
updates.  When updating you get unnecessary conflicts that need to be
resolved.  When working offline you can't cvs remove files.  If you cvs
remove files before tagging, the tag won't apply to that file.  And
probably more.  On the other hand the gain is inexistent.
