Some browsers are very particular about it.

Costs nothing to try, right?

Like (I think) I said earlier in the thread, it's so easy to supply a
mime-type and so "cheap", it just makes good sense (IMO) to provide as
much metadata for each file as you can. It'll ensure proper handling,
instead of guessing, on the part of all software that's mime-type
aware. It leaves no ambiguity about the mergeability of the file when
Subversion is working on it, and helps when browsing the repository
via basic HTTP.
