-1 for that. Having shrinkwrap at all times will result in postponed
discovery of incompatibilities with newer versions (which are usually
trickier than shrinkwrap problems) until you nuke node_modules during
release. From my experience for repos that had it, it also resulted in a
great deal of confusion for contributors.

+1, no need to use shrinkwrap in cordova-lib, only cordova-cli and
cordova-plugman (they don't depend on each other now, both contain
executables calling into cordova-lib).
