As recently discussed here, the current version of the test
suite on dev.w3.org has compete metadata but not a complete
collection of the test cases.  In light of this fact, it
is understandable that the various directories where one
would expect to find the test cases have README files saying
that the data aren't there but elsewhere.

But what does it mean that the same README files, saying

   The contents of this directory not available (yet) via CVS.
   Changes to individual files can be checked in here.
   If browsing this repository, as opposed to downloading the
   entire collection (see http://www.w3.org/XML/2004/xml-schema-test-suite/)
   is really what you want to do, please send email requesting that
   this directory be filled in, and explaining why,
   to public-xml-schema-testsuite@w3.org, which is also where any other
   questions or comments should be directed.

appear in the version of the 1.0 test suite downloadable from
the address indicated?

Do these README files belong in the full distribution of the
test suite, or is their presence there simply a mistake?

If they belong, can someone explain what they mean?

If they don't belong, should a fresh version of the 1.0
test suite be prepared in which they (and possibly the CVS
sub-directories present in some locations) are omitted?

Or does it not matter whether they belong or not?
