What point? That his text usage is limited to a small set of tools?
There is no universal agreement on how text should be handled.

The reality is that text is represented differently on different
platforms. For some specific uses you can pretend that isn't true and
for some you can't. A revision control system that works cross-platform
should be able to deal with native formats, and subversion does - it
could just be improved.
