That may be true in a big company with lots of developers or a
community with a lot of contributors, but I think with a small number
of developers it would probably be more beneficial for them to have
commit access to help keep development rolling. At least there's a
smaller risk of breaking things when a few have their hands on the
same box rather than many hands on the same box.
