svn blame not working for files which had binary mime-type in a previous revision

I would like to bring up an old issue here:
I've just bumped into this, and first it was really confusing why would svn
blame work with one xml file, but not with the other, as the
Skipping binary file: 'reference/apc/book.xml'
wasn't really helpful.
I understand that the discussion back in 2004 didn't reached an agreement
about how to resolve the issue, but could we at least change the error
message to something like:
Skipping binary file: 'reference/apc/book.xml' as binary mime-type was
found in revision X, use --force to proceed.

This would at least lessen the confusion on the users part.

ps: please cc me to the replies as I'm not subscribed to the list.
