SVN "This isn't text" property

What's the best way of saying that a file "isn't text" (even though it
is). We have a couple of files that are binary data coded up as comma
separated byte values. I essentially want them to be treated as binary
for the following reasons:

1) Auto-merge should not be possible
2) The changeset note generated by Trac should not contain a "diff" of
the file (otherwise a very large web-page with a long load-time results)

I read somewhere that setting svn:mime-type to application/octet-stream
should solve issue (1), but a quick test shows it doesn't solve issue 2.
  I'm really not sure whether issue 2 is a trac issue or a SVN issue,
I've asked here first because I'm already subscribed to your list!
