Since the
possibility (however slight) exists that the record changed, I personally
prefer the "read into DS" option.

Isn't the possibility far greater than slight?  Tim said this is a heavily
used file.  The idea of reading a record, testing it, and if chosen,
rereading the record and updating it is a really quick way to read a file. 
The chances are very good that it will arrive at almost every single
record that is already out on other workstations and read it.  This could
lead to a lot of conflicts I think.
