I can't help you much about the mergeinfo, but are you saying here that you *only* do revision based merging, a.k.a. cherry-picking merging? Becuase if that's the case you don't need the mergeinfo at all and you can use the --ignore-ancestry option of the merge command to not store any mergeinfo. The history is preserved regardless of the mergeinfo. But, you probably mean you do cherry-picking merging from trunk to branch and then reintegrate the branch to trunk, so you do need mergeinfo.
