Missing expected state

correct. Also we don't want to see a rename/rename conflict (obviously).

If we have

    Commit A: z/{b_1,c}
    Commit B: y/{b_2,c}
    Commit C: y/{b_3,c}, z/d

then we'd produce a standard file merge (which may or may not result
in conflict,
depending on touched lines) for y/b_{try-resolve}

makes sense.

makes sense, too.

What is less obvious in all these cases is the "(no change)" part to me.
I would think that at least *something* changes in B in all cases above, maybe
add file u/r (un-related) to have the tree ids changed?
("Less obvious" as in: we don't rely on the "no changes" part to make
the decision,
which sounds tempting so far)

No conclusion box here, so my (misguided) suggestion:

  If "No change" occurs, just take the other side. ;)
