Merge info is stored as properties, so the dump format for 1.5 and 1.4
are no different and you can dump/load back to 1.4. The merge
tracking information would come in as properties that 1.4 would not do
anything about.

If you were to later go back to 1.5 you'd probably want to dump/load
versus upgrade as otherwise the existing mergeinfo properties will not
be treated as such in your history. Of course that might also be
something you want.

The bottom line is that yes it is supported, but when you later go to
1.5+ there might be considerations to take into account.
