Although I've just noticed that
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-media-types/ indicates:

Any XHTML Family document MAY be served as 'text/xml'. The
considerations for 'application/xml' also apply to 'text/xml'.
Whenever appropriate, 'application/xhtml+xml' SHOULD be used rather
than 'text/xml'.

So the application/* is the preferred but not mandatory option. It's
just a shame the preferred option prevents svn from handling them as
text files.
