Field calcs on checkout replica outside of an edit session?

I created a checkout replica so that I could make massive attribute edits outside of an edit session, but ArcMap says I need to be in an edit session to do field calcs.

Is this true? Why is this? It's a personal geodatabase.

This is using ArcMap 10.1.

Can I use a Python script on the checkout to update the attributes?
