Or any part of the code? Thanks to Subversion, it is possible to see
where some code has appeared for the first time.

Otherwise, what happens when a file with a copyright notice of 2006 is
split into two parts, one of them having been last modified in 2005 and
the other one in 2006?

I'd personally see files just as a technical mean of organizing the
source (the copyright notice just being a reminder concerning the
whole work), in case some file would be separated from the whole work
by accident. The copyright rules should be the same, whether all the
functions (or parts of the code) are grouped into one file or in
separate files.
