Side effects of disabling automatic merges using the mime-type?

I've read several threads addressing the issue of disabling automatic
merges using the svn:mime-type property. In enterprise environments
automatic merges are a big concern and sometimes simply not acceptable.
A separate option for turning off this feature would be great, but right
now the mime-type property seems to work OK.

Up to now I figured out the following side-effects of using binary
mime-types for text-files:

* svn:eol-style doesn't work (same is probably true for keyword
expansion, but I didn't try this out myself)

* diff doesn't work, unless you specify the --force option

* blame doesn't work (no --force option available)

* merge doesn't work, unless you specify the --force option

Is someone aware of any other disadvantages or pit-falls?
