merge - is it possible to ignore/mask certain/all properties?

Is it possible with svn merge to ignore particular properties during
merge operations?

For example, we use special 'hotfix' properties on our hotfix branches
that I don't want merging into our release branch. I know the developers
performing the merges should simply spot the operation before a commit
but that simply doesn't happen - it would be much better if there was a
method of ignoring certain properties when it comes to merging...?

(I suppose the other option could always be a hook preventing non-admin
users from committing such properties on non-hotfix branches??)

Have I missed a secret (svn merge --ignore-props) option or am I chasing
a ghost..???
