But 1.2 is *not* an ancestor of, so the merge is bogus.

All you've done is degraded merge into a simple copy.  In a true merging 
situation the two branches can easily follow independent paths and never 
be identical to each other - mergepoints are designed to help you 
extract the difference between two points on the *same* branch.  What 
you seem to want is not mergepoints but a copy operation.
