rel_5_2 has *only* received merges, either from trunk or any other branch, is that correct? Then again a move is sufficient. The mergeinfo in the new branch, rel_2_6, will refer to rel_2_5_3 which you are not renaming. The problem would be if you had merged rel_2_5 to, let's say, rel_3_0. In that case you would need to edit the svn:mergeinfo property (using svn propedit not svn propset).
