I don't think this is intentional.  More likely committers add
acknowledgments in the same commit as the code changes and they end up
in whatever branch the patch is applied to.   I think this is fine,
but from time to time the list should be merged to avoid svnmerge
annoyances.  Whoever is annoyed by svnmerge (like myself :-) should
resync the lists.
