I suggest not.

The only reason to keep the directory is to preserve CVS history. To
"move" files in CVS, you remove the old file and add the file in its
new location. The new file starts at version 1.1, with no history. You
can still get the history for the original file, but that has to be
done separately, and you have to know the old name (it's a good idea
to add this information in the commit message for the new file).

You can move files within the repository, but that breaks checking out
older versions, as CVS will think that the file has always been at its
new location.
