I haven't checked, but I'd guess empty-file is used to generate diffs,
true? In that creating an empty file on demand couldn't be that of a
performance bottle-neck... Shy bother with an empty-file in .subversion in
that case? We just stop using empty-file and stop creating it in the next
WC format.
