You can use
svn propdel svn:executable

I have never heard that something funny has happened.

I would suggest the conversion, just for the sakeness of being correct. (It
has an impact on programs like mc, that do not want to display an executable
file.)

As for a smaller commit, I am not sure what you mean. Your local copy will be
smaller indeed, as the property will go away. (So if you have many files, it
could sum up.)

Have a nice day!
