I agree, your solution is much better.

The 1.6 behavior is inconsistent.

 - Most conflicts are copied as-is. I think consensus is that that's a bad idea.

 - Some are are copied, but leave behind the marker file explaining the
conflict (e.g., copying a single prop-conflicted file).

 - Some are resolved, but have conflict-markers in text (e.g., copying a
single text-conflicted file).

 - Some aren't copied at all (e.g., "local missing" merge conflicts). That's OK.

For 1.7, I'd like to have a rule that we can explain in a single sentence:

  "Copying conflicted items implies 'svn resolve --depth infinite --accept
  mine-full' at the destination path."
