This is not something that has to be done 100% of the time to be useful;
whenever it is done, it is useful.  

It's rare for the information to be unreliable.  Other multi-developer
projects I've worked with follow this practice, and the reliability of
the information has not generally been an issue (for that matter, most
of the devs remember to do it most of the time).

I agree it would be better for the information to be produced
automatically.  But doing it manually is better than not doing it at
all, which would appear to be the alternative right now.
