This happens because there's no create-repo method implemented for the
CVS backend:

  (vc-find-backend-function 'CVS 'create-repo) => nil

When that happens, Emacs cannot DWYM when you type "C-x v v" for an
unregistered file.  So it only offers you backends which do have a
create-repo method implemented.  Feel free to report that as a bug, at
least in the documentation.
