Anecdotal evidence here, but:

These days, my primary use of RCS is to keep copies of files (with history) that I no longer want in my working directories. I occasionally examine these files, but it's pretty rare - basically a warm archive, with history.

I would be leery of having emacs automatically answer any VC questions at all -- there are new vc systems being added and developed, and it's not hard for me to imagine a (non-emacs-using) developer adding a prompt where either `yes' or `no' is the right answer most of the time but a destructively wrong answer in some rarer cases.

The point is, with RCS, these files are not really nonexistent.

We have to agree to disagree on that point.
