You generally only need to worry about this if there's a good chance that
you'll be changing the integration relationships between these codelines at
a later date -- specifically, if you're going to be integrating from
editor-dev to some other codeline that came from an older (pre-rename) version
of main, without first integrating from main to pick up the move operation.

See this blog article:   
http://www.perforce.com/blog/131010/refactoring-reparenting

If you follow the advice given by the warning message, the confusing scenario
described in that article can't come about later if you decide to reparent
-- but if you never reparent (or "drive through the hedges", as 
Practical Perforce  describes it) it won't happen anyway.
