One simple case I had myself was when debugging a suspected problem with
one of dependencies and wasting several hours to only discover that the
dependency version setting in package.json was ignored due to presence of
npm-shrinkwrap. It's stupid simple, but since shrinkwrap is not a very
common tool, people are not aware of it, or just forget that it's there.
While for us it's the center of this discussion, the average cordova
contributor is likely to not even remember what the decision was about
which repos should contain it when etc.
