The del command will give you the revision number of the result.
Let it be 167 for this suggestion.
You could then:
   svn cp -r 167 svn://repo/trunk svn://repo/merge-points/mybranch

That is still not atomic, but it does eliminate the problem that you
specifically cite:

Tagging an older revision is mentioned at the end of 'svn copy' page in
the Subversion book.
