The svn:mergeinfo properties can be read locally without contacting the
repository. If you remove those, svn has to contact the repository
several times again to fetch that information for the merge. And
contacting the repository takes longer than just accessing the harddrive
and read the properties.
That's why merges will take longer if you remove those properties. Of
course, if your repository is on a fast LAN and not on a slow internet
connection, you maybe won't even notice it - but you will notice it (and
get annoyed because it takes so long) if you have a slow connection.
