Question about mergeinfo

We are using svn 1.6 for a few weeks. Since then we faced the problem
of the mergeinfo changing in files different from those that people
were actually committing. We found out that we should always commit
from the same level to stop this to happen.

All good. I presume that we should have svn:mergeinfo property only on
the root of the branch we are merging too, correct?

It happens that several sub-folders in the branch that weren't
touched, contain mergeinfo property with revisions that ahve nothing
to do with that folder.

I had thought that some commits done from the root would change and
clear up the mergeinfo of subfolder, but this doesn't seem to be the

Could someone please clarify how this clearing of mergeinfo works?

Another question: we do revision based merging, promoting
stories/goals not necessarily in the same order they were committed in
the trunk. Besides helping in tracing the changes in the branch the
the original logs, is there any other utility in having the mergeinfo
