[arch-general] Where has my /etc/networks gone?

I'm playing around with schroot and when creating a chroot with
"type=directory" I at first failed to start it. The reason seems to be
the lack of the file "/etc/networks".  I created an empty one, and
that was accepted by schroot.  However, the man page (networks(5)) is
rather cryptic, so what is this file for?  Would it not be better to
always have one (albeit empty) by default?
