Back in RCS times, the set of possible actions at any given time was
limited by constraints imposed by the tool.
A lot of the motivation behind the subsequent tools has been to try and
lift this constraints, and as a result, unsurprisingly most operations
can now be applied at any time.
So the DWIM element of C-x v v is indeed by nature very difficult to
port from RCS to Git/Hg/Bzr/Younameit.

So I think that refining C-x v v is pretty hopeless.  I won't stop
anyone from doing it, but I think it's a complete waste of time.
