Hmmm. It is not obvious to me what we should do here. Maybe abort?

I believe the skipped behavior has always been there, and we cannot
set any mergeinfo because to do that we need to have the file.

We might ultimately need the tree-conflicts code before this can be dealt with.

Did you have any ideas?
