That strikes me as impractical.  How can I merge two revisions if I
can't see some of the changed files?  If my local repository contains
the files, how convincing is it that I'm prevented access to them in
some sense?

I suspect in that case you want to *remove* the files, not just
control access to them.  And yes, that's really hard (impossible,
really) in a distributed system.

So I doubt it's worth worrying overly much about---better to
concentrate on more common situations that might be solvable.
