I believe this is similar to how we handle sparse files
(a feature which is not in trunk yet).

A "fake" entry is created with information saying "this file
is not present on disk, but that's OK, the user has chosen
to omit it from the working copy".

So if we did something similar for non-existent tree conflict
victims, that would be consistent.
