Haven’t had a chance to catch up on the latest discussion, but I just saw that 
the Yarn developers posted an excellent piece on lockfiles this week:


They argue lockfiles should be commited by libraries (but still ignored by 
applications). The essential point is that this makes it easier for developers 
of the library to maintain a coherent build of the library when dependencies 
ship a bug. The focus is particularly on new developers, who would otherwise 
lack a lockfile.
