Autoexpanding ZIP archives?

Hi,

sorry, if this was asked before, but I could not yet find anything
about that matter.

There are plenty of open source file formats (e.g. OpenDocument),
which look like a binary format, but are actually just a zip archive
of several files, mostly XML, but binaries like images etc. as well.

How would subversion treat these archives? As plain binaries?

If I correct just a typo in a large presentation, which is actually
just a changed line in one of the XML files, this impacs the whole zip
archive.

How would subversion deal with that? Would it store the complete
binary as a diff, just because on XML line had been changed?

What about auto-expanding zip archives and storing them as svn files,
and auto-compressing when exporting the repository?

regards
Hadmut
