I'd hope that when the day comes on which svn finally has merge
tracking it wouldn't matter where a change started out. You should be
able to merge in either direction.

Currently with svk merge tracking it's actually better to make changes
to the release branch first and then merge them to the trunk rather
than vice versa. (Since the latter would pull all trunk changes into
the release branch). In order to grab just particular changes from
trunk into a release branch you'd need cherry picking support in
addition to merge tracking.
