Well, the fact is that with CVS, they were working on unix only but now that they have discovered TortoiseSVN, they often do their subversion operations on windows (throught samba) and work on unix. I know that may seem a bit strange... but anyway, that's like that. And that's why they don't want the versioning system to deal with the content of their files. (They are not the first developers I encountered who have this point of view (that this should not be the versioning system job), and I must admit that they may be right, but that's a long debate... :) )

My advice is that it would be great if subversion could overload the svn:eol-style property in the client configuration (or/and in the command lines options), but that's an other story.
