I think you are asking if it would be a recursive property.

My initial reaction would be no - just like any other property.

This way if you have the property set on the `/trunk' directory and you
move the file to `/tag' which does not have the property set it will
behave the same.

I know you asked about the root, but one level down is a more
interesting case for an inconsistency.
