If these files can indeed be generated from the data or code already in the
repository, and you don't want the history of these files, then there is no
reason to commit them to the repository.

This is also the way that many people treat the binaries compiled from
source code in a repository. When you want the binaries, you just check out
the source code at the right version and run the build script. The
svn:ignore attribute comes in handy to keep the 'svn status' output clean.
