As for lines needing to be replaced, I agree with Jim A. that the lines
themselves are unlikely to fail - mine looked absolutely safe still. The
problem that I had was with the ends getting all rusted up.
I'm sure I've had the odd line not come off a wheel cylinder cleanly. If the union nut has rusted to the line, it is very hard to separate the joint without twisting the hard line off too. It just depends on the severity of the rust. I think Jim usually hones the rear cyls in place, so he might not have come up against this problem. Having said that, I've not often had problems either; it may be that that's happened more on the other (newer!) VWs.
