The merit of leaving an import locked, as I see it, is that you can't then accidentally modify it, or mistake it for your working Data Set and enter data there by mistake.

So far as I can tell, there is no difference between "refreshing" a data set and manually deleting it and re-importing it. I don't understand any value to the refresh function. There is no way to get TMG to tell you what was updated in either case.
