Making branches and typical patterns

I'm trying to decide at what level of granularity I want to branch at but seems to have a confict with inter-project dependencies.

Let's say my project consists of three sub-projects. The repos looks like:-

trunk\project\subproj1 (version 1)
trunk\project\subproj2 (version 1)
trunk\project\subproj3 (version 1)

Let's say my working folder structure is:-

project\subproj1 (version1)
project\subproj2 (version1)
project\subproj3 (version1)

I only want to work on and branch subproj2, so I switch subproj2 to point at a branch instead:-

project\subproj1 (version1)
project\subproj2 (branch)
project\subproj3 (version1)

Is this how people work with SVN or do only top-level projects get branched? If so, why?
