Huh?  The lock on the door isn't to keep the coworkers out.  It's to let
them /in/ while keeping everyone else out.  So I don't really see the
analogy.

Or are you talking about the individual offices?  If so, then I'd expect
the locks to be /used/ only under rather unusual circumstances.  If
someone in the office has something to hide, I think that's rather
suspicious, actually...
