According to http://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg131446.html
it was intentional omissed from lyx2lyx:
During a fast-evolving period like this, with no public release in
between, reversion of lyx2lyx is IMHO acceptable. In this particular
case, if version 250 adds the manifest section, and 260 removes this
section, all 1.5.0 to 1.6.0 conversion will go through this useless
addition and removal, so I reverted part of version 250 (I do not
remember the exact format number).
Even if this decision was not without controversy and discussion, it does
not make sense to change it 9 years later only because one file was
missed under the cleanup 9 years ago and unfortunately landed in the
ctest test pool.
