Yes -- Since Subversion thinks it knows the actual MIME type of the
file, Apache does not have to guess based on the extension.

Strictly speaking, no. But you can set the Subversion preferences in
the users' accounts so that when svn adds a file with extension .html,
svn will also do an "svn propset svn:mime-type" on the file.

You can write a script that will do the propset on every .html file in a
WC, and then check it in.
