I think people should simply get used to the idea that "default" is /the/ main branch in Mercurial (*). It's even easier to remember IMHO ("trunk" sounds a bit obscure at first, for a non-native English speaker).
+1. People will recognize "trunk" as a svn think. If that doesn't clue them in, they will ask, and every other person will know.
But why not choose a name where they don't even have to ask?
Doesn't "trunk" represent exactly what it is (the former SVN trunk)? Other names would probably be less exact or less precise.
Although I now admit "legacy-trunk" sounds quite accurate, and conveys a clear warning to anyone wondering if they should use it.
