Don't think so, those are new (and as I understand) optional features,
no need to worry about that.

The interesting part (to me) is this:

"Mac OS X File Coordination

File coordination allows an application to access files and
directories in a way that is serialized with other processes' accesses
of the same files and directories. This prevents inconsistencies due
to overlapping reads and writes."

This might be the reason why users cannot save documents in Lion.
