I'm afraid I can't answer that; that depends on your local policies,
practices and people.

Unfortunately not. Those svn commands that require text to make any
sense (svn diff, merge, blame, etc.) will no longer have any useful
output. There are other threads discussing this, though I don't think
there's been a consensus as to the best solution. If you need to have
the file treated as text, it will need to be set to one of the
recognised text svn:mime-type's (or no mime-type at all).

Sharing settings on a per-repository basis has been mooted for a
future release, but there's nothing set in the milestones yet, AFAIK.
