Javascript mime-type treated as binary

Some of our files have the svn:mime-type set to 'application/x-javascript'.

Even though we know the file is really text, svn merge treats the file
as a binary.

I think application/x-javascript is obviously text. There doesn't seem
to be a way to inform subversion what mime-types are actually text
versus binary.

Some our developers know better than to set svn:mime-type, but we're a
large project so not everybody has received the word. This problem
messes up our merge strategy.

I really think this is really a subversion bug.

Anybody concur?
