I was thinking of cases where you are looking at your schedule for the next two weeks. If you know a conflict is coming up then something will be bumped. You may want to rearrange your priority list.
Particularly useful if several people in the house are recording different shows. You can then do a consult with your kid to see who gets priority.
What you are talking about is different. You can't watch a show because all tuners are engaged. At that moment you can make a decision to cancel a previously scheduled recording since you would rather see live TV or record the remainder.
I agree that in the second case it would be micromanagement.
