A dynamic view in Clearcase should be able to access any arbitrary
file or revision associated with the VOB via the MVFS extended path
notation. So, even if you use a path name that does not exist in your
working copy due to your current config spec, you should still be able
to access deletefile@@/branch/5, for example. You should be able to
test this out directly at the command line. The dynamic view on the
server is just a vehicle to access the Clearcase database. It doesn't
matter at all what state it is in. If you think this isn't true, then
we need to understand why and evaluate other options.
