That may well be the case since I got my information from
http://www.webmaster-toolkit.com/mime-types.shtml
which is not an official source. Anyways, there are more examples, not just
.tex. See also .eps, .ps, and especially .xhtml: The W3C prefers
application/xhtml+xml for XHTML.

Although I'm still looking for an official MIME type list, I think that
SVN's behaviour of considering application/* to be binary isn't correct at
all.
