Ok, I have understood. It does not make big difference, more important
is that the information exists.
It is better to be compliant with the existing norms and rules, so
svn:mime-type is OK too.

Well, I tested with svn:mime-type=text/plain; charset=windows1251. I
tried to define it as
auto property in [auto-props] section of Subversion config file
(it resides in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application
Data\Subversion).
This was not successful because ';' after 'plain' is a delimiter and so
"charset=windows1251"
is truncated. This is argument against svn:mime-type.
