Named branches are exclusive, they can't be a subset of each other ;) (in other words: 2.7 starts where trunk stops; trunk changesets are strict ancestors of 2.7)
Maybe I don't fully understand how Mercurial branches work or how it defines terminology (in fact, that is likely :) ). What's the difference between the statement "trunk changesets are strict ancestors of 2.7" and the statement "trunk's history is a strict subset of 2.7's history"?
Apparently you overlooked the first statement: "Named branches are exclusive". In other words, a changeset can be in only one named branch. So it's impossible for a branch to be a subset or superset of another. (except the trivial case of an empty branch :-)).
