Yes.

Yes.

More generally, the 'mark as resolved' option (aka 'accept current wc state')
will retain the state left behind after the merge/update/switch operation if
the state was not modified by the user in the meantime. We could try to make
the resolver print better descriptions of 'r' options in specific cases, for
example:

  (r) keep file 'foo' deleted

Implementing this in a general way would require:

  A) Making a list of all the WC configurations the update/merge/switch
     operations leave behind for many possible tree conflicts to give us
     an idea of where we could improve 'mark resolved' option descriptions.

  B) Implementing checks which verify that the current WC configuration still
     matches this expected configuration, and falling back to the generic
     'acccept current wc state' description if it does not match.

There is no option which handles this case yet. It would be good to have one.

For the moment I have stopped adding more options because I would like to
implement additional options based on end user feedback, instead of guessing
what end users might want.
