Yes - I think you are missing something :-)

The idea of having a developer branch (or sandbox or whatever - depending on your particular version control metaphor of choice) is to have a copy of everything so you can tweak to your heart's content rather without the risk of messing somebody else's work up.

In any decent system branches are cheap since they only track changes to the files you tweak rather than duplicating them.
