I am not sure that importing is the right thing to do.  If I
understand the CVS docs correctly, this produces a branch, but we'd
rather want to have this added into HEAD.

Does anybody have a clue who we could ask about this?  With regard to
releases: using the same kind of tags as for the rest of AUCTeX seems
like a plan, but we should keep RefTeX out of the AUCTeX
_distribution_ (tarballs, top Makefile etc) at first, I would think,
even though we'll have it be a top-level subdirectory.
