Foreign repository checking seems less than robust

It appears that, when executing a merge, a repository is deemed a "foreign
repository" based on a simple match of the url.

This is often wrong. A DNS search domain, multiple hostnames, etc can all fool
subversion into thinking it is using a foreign repos when this is not the case.

Wouldn't it be just as easy to use the Repository UUID to make this
determination?

I'm trying to spark some discussion to meet the Buddy policy to
support this issue:
