--no-prompt is designed to remove the prompt before launching a mergetool. This is because it is mostly pointless but does provide a convenient point to interrupt (C-c) a large multifile conflict resolution. It was never supposed to be a batch mode switch. By it's very nature mergetool is interactive so I don't see any advantage to pretending otherwise. If the documentation indicates otherwise then it's my opinion that this is what needs to be fixed.
