If your problem is that certain file types often get added by mistake,
wouldn't a pre-commit hook script that disallows such file types from
being added solve your problem? (With creative use of properties, you
could even implement a force flag if you sometimes needed this). I don't
know how common your use-case is, but my first reaction is that this
feature is a little too specialized to justify the costs.
