I don't do that regularly (but have done it once or twice), but from my understanding, that fixes the "problem"/annoyance where existing subtree mergeinfo gets updated every time a merge is done, even if the merge doesn't affect the files with mergeinfo.

I do always merge at the root.

This also seems to address the issue of updates on existing mergeinfo, but not creation of new mergeinfo.
