Moving on a branch

Dear list,

Apologies if this is obvious, but I have a use case I've tried to figure
out but can't.
We're currently using a CVS repository, but we'd like to move to
subversion, because we'd
like to restructure it without losing change history using "svn move".
This restructure is likely
to take a couple of weeks, during which time the rest of the team will
be working and commiting.
Therefore, we'd like to:

1) Import from CVS
2) Branch at that point
3) Restructure on the branch, moving files around, whilst work goes on
the HEAD.
4) Merge the branch onto the HEAD at which point, the changes from the
head will appear
in the path from the branch.

I've tried a dry run of this with a test repository, and it's unhappy.
Having read various postings, it seems
that we'd need "merge tracking" for this to work, which is a medium term
goal on the subversion site.
Am I correct? It's shame if I am!

Many thanks,
Phil Parsonage
