The problem is that all these files are mentioned in
lisp/mh-e/ChangeLog, so it is very confusing not to find them, or have
them in another directory.

I understand the reason for having the same ChangeLog in Emacs that
you have in your primary repository, but given that you already
move/delete some of the files (as you explained above), perhaps
editing ChangeLog that is checked into the Emacs CVS would not be such
a bad idea.

Alternatively, perhaps consider adding mh-xemacs.el, README and
MH-E-NEWS to lisp/mh-e anyway.  They shouldn't do too much harm, I
think; etc/NEWS could say something like "for changes in MH-E see
