Does that mime-type imply that the postscript must be in text and not
binary format?
Can't PS files be in either? (I know PDF can; I've several PDF files
which clearly have
chunks of binary data within them, e.g.
   /Filter /FlateDecode
     <binary data>

Even if it is completely text, do you really want PS files merged and
then resolve the conflicts yourself? I know I don't. I wouldn't have
a clue how to do so. My impression is that *very* few people would
want that.

Remember, the desire for Subversion to perform line-based merges is
(currently, AFAIK,) the only reason to have mime-types recognized as
non-binary. ( Ref:
