IMHO, the problem isnot to define wich file is text, wich is not. but to allow the fast/flex migration from one EOL style to another, and to help convert eol-style of text files. In a WinCVS was a special property (Check out text with UNIX EOL). By this set i can fast define wich type of EOL i want to checkout.
Maby the solve is to define a new value of eol-style property : text. files with such propery should to checkout/diff with ignoring/converting eol-style to required.

in tortoiseSVN was a conflist at import files wich recognised as binary because thye has a auto-prop:eol-style and TSVN sets a property mime-type. maybe a another solve is to treat a files without a mime-type property as texts, and checkout/diff them as required eol-stile.
