That actually seems like a good idea to me. You are saying if I am in
trunk, and I do a reverse merge of any change that occurred in trunk
it would allow it and do it like it does in 1.4. But, if I did a
reverse merge in trunk by specifying changes from some branch it would
use the mergeinfo to determine what to do?

If so, then I think that makes a lot of sense and is justifiable. I'd
probably even argue that it ought to be working like that already has
/trunk would not have mergeinfo about itself anyway .. would it? If I
make a change and commit, I do not get mergeinfo added. So without
this logic, I could not reverse merge that commit.
