It seems that they are needed (not totally empty, but when they contain 
no hosts/profiles/packages, they should at least contain:

<profiles></profiles> - for profiles.xml
<packages></packages> - for packages.xml
<wpkg></wpkg> - for hosts.xml

If I recall correctly, this is the way how it works; I can't check it 
right now.

If it's really that way, then it should be handled in a nicer way of course.
