Basically because if you do commit on a sandbox and you can't write to 
certain subdirectories or files, the whole operation should succeed and 
only the commit on the protected subdirectories should fail.  If you 
made it fatal you would end up with sandboxes that it was impossible to 
commit in even though you had write access (the same as with update.. 
it's the same test in fact so you can't change one without changing the 

-q commit is an odd combination... surely you want as much information 
as possible about a commit?  It's always good practice to verify that 
it's done what you've expected.
