Concurrent Release Branch Development

We consistently work concurrently on multiple Release Branches (Chapter 4. 
Branching and Merging).  A big problem is the failure to 'forward fit' changes 
from older release branches into newer release branches.  I read how we could 
manually 'remember' and merge older release branches into newer release branches 
- but we need to systematically ensure this is done, or in rare cases 
consciously not done.  I suppose there is a corollary condition of removing 
changes from newer release branches when they are reverted from older branches, 
or ensuring there was a conscious decision to to not remove them.

Is there any discussion on how to manage this with subversion?
