You'll lose track of which files are on the branch and which are
still on the trunk.  You will make changes to the trunk files that
depend on the presence of the branch files, everything will work
in your sandbox but at that point your trunk is broken.  That sort
of thing.  As a rule, it is much safer to branch all the files.

Well, at a minimum you should switch your Windows Explorer view
to the "details" list and customize the displayed columns to
include the CVS sticky tag.
