mergeinfo on all root files and folders

We always do merges from the root of the repository. When these merges are done svn always marks up the mergeinfo on all first level files and folders as well as the root folder itself. Is this working as intended? We have had a practice for quite a while, dating back to buggy releases where we periodically delete all mergeinfo except for the root of the repository. I'm wondering whether I should amend the script to leave the first level files and folders intact as it seems that it is impossible to reintegrate a branch without these files and folders having the same mergeinfo as the root of the repository and in the past I have had to patch in the mergeinfo to get reintegrate to work.
Can anyone enlighten me on this?
