Does anyone know whether DAVE does other things than negate the irritating Project Setting Save error message?

I am setting up AVID (MC v6 on Mac OS 10.7.5) to connect to an Isilon server set up via SMB for an educational institution. Everything works fine (AMA, copying media files, saving bin files etc.), even the project file saves, but I still get the error message.

Installing DAVE negates the error message, which is very nice, but it seems an expensive exercise to pay for a large number of DAVE licenses simply to avoid an error message. My alternate plan is to save project locally, then copy project file to server and/or thumbdrive.

Does anyone know whether DAVE actually does more than simply negate the error message? Are there other processes going on in the background that will suffer without DAVE? Does DAVE provide speed improvements or other additional 'goodies'?

Your help/advice/information will be greatly appreciated.
