Yes, you can commit them all at once, I can't see how that would affect
future merges back to the trunk.  (svn won't really care: you'll just do
a diff between the trunk and a fully-synched branch, then apply that to
a wc of the trunk)

You should remove the "merge-point" property from the branch before
merging it back, though, since there's little point in having that on
the trunk.
