For me, that would be very annoying. I often use Dired to open folders
on Windows network shares, shares that might be in remote locations.
Having Emacs auto refresh now and then would lock it up for several
seconds each time.
I have no problem hitting `g' once in a while.
Another case against it, maybe even a better one: If you are, like me,
using the toggle and kill commands in Dired buffers, maybe together
with % m and % g, you would be really angry if you lost a surgically
selected batch of files because the buffer was refreshed.
