I believe the answer is that it is just how new files are encoded.
The file is a new file. It did not exist in any previous revision.
The earliest possible revision is revision 0 so that is used to
represent the start of new files. The revision 2 is where the file
came into being. I see revision 0 used with regards to new files.

But take that with caution as I am the one asking the original
question! :-)
