You sound confused; reading <http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2046.txt>
will probably clear it up. Content-Type is just the header used
to express the media type in two protocols (MIME and HTTP); it is
irrelevant to this discussion. A media type includes optional
parameters, one of which is charset.

If Subversion wants to provide an additional means to specify the
encoding, that's OK (though i think it's a bad idea to have it
specified in two places), but disallowing the charset parameter in
the svn:mime-type property is incorrect.
