automerge

Feature String: http://tmapi.org/features/automerge

If an implementation supports this feature, then whenever the implementation detects that two Topics should be merged (by one or more of the merge features defined under http://tmapi.org/features/merge/ ), then the implementation MUST merge the properties of these two Topics automatically and transparently to the API client. This means that the client must be able to continue using a reference to either of the two original Topics but should be viewing/manipulating the same merged Topic.

If an implementation does not support this feature, then whenever the implementation detects that two Topics should be merged, it MUST raise an org.tmapi.core.TopicsMustMergeException.
