Maybe I'm missing something...

How does being a former RCS repository imply that every file has a
commit on every branch? Shouldn't it only have a commit if the file
was modified since being branched?

I presume a more detailed restatement would be "Every file that is on
a branch B also has at least one commit on B", but still don't see why
that would be true...
