I'm agreeing to the fact that editors have to handle text in the right way
but - for any reason - some people didn't get this arguments.
Because this topic is also touching the styleguide stories I guess following
solution (if implementable and acceptable for most):

Subversions handles text as done by default; but.....
.....you can define a converter (a script or program) for the checkin
operations as well as for the checkouts operations and each file will be
passed to this converter(s). Result:
 - you can define the format of text you like beeing stored inside of
 - every user can define the format he wants to see when retrieving a
file from subversion.

Sure - the subversion team isn't really forced to do that but
may be - it can serve nerves......

How about?
