[MonoDevelop] Requesting write permission

I'm starting to look into how to support automatically asking for write
permission when MonoDevelop saves files, which might mean asking the
version control addin to open the file for editing. It looks simple
enough, to put calls to FileService.RequestFileEdit in the appropriate
places before trying to overwrite files.
My question, though, is where the best place for these calls should be?
Should it be at the high level -- i.e., for commands like "File->Save,"
-- or does it make more sense at the low level, i.e., in each actual
file format implementation that does the writing? The former seems to
make more sense, since it captures more things with less code, but it
isn't clear if it's appropriate to introduce file checks at so high a level.
