DirA/DirB/DirC                  $CVSROOT/Emptydir

seems to me a better choice.  There may not be a truly right
thing to do here, but "$CVSROOT/." seems less right than the
alternative, in the sense of "less likely to be what the user
intended or expected, and less likely to be what they'll find

(No argument about the other four, btw.)
