No, it is a bug in me; I read over section 
(info "(emacs)Registering")
but missed this the first time:

"On the other hand, if there are no files already
registered, Emacs uses the first system from
`vc-handled-backends' that could register the file (for
example, you cannot register a file under CVS if its
directory is not already part of a CVS tree);...."

It looks like, from lisp/ChangeLog.13 the handler function
was removed.

        * vc-mcvs.el (vc-mcvs-create-repo):
        * vc-cvs.el (vc-cvs-create-repo): Remove.

sure why it was removed.  But if you don't think this is as
it should be I can post that there.  (I sort of assumed that
if it were really bug I someone else would have noticed in 3
years.)
