Fair enough.

I think the doc strings do need to say that the file name is
added/modified in the Dired buffer, but that's a separate issue.
Maybe to make the doc string of dired-create-empty-file hint at that,
instead "create empty file" say something like "add an empty file to
the current directory"?
