I'm not sure I'm buying this.  People who install emacs-snapshot wish
to use it, and this includes editing LaTeX documents.

Furthermore, I expect that the CVS Emacs is only used by people who
know what they are doing ;-)

But you're right in that people who install auctex might not expect to
have such problems -- perhaps we need another package auctex-snapshot
which makes it clear what is happening?
