keyword expansion for MS Office files

My client is interested in using Subversion for versioning documents such as
MS Office files. They would like keyword substitution on these files for
things like Revision number and date.

I just tested this with a Word document and it seems to work fine. I used
fixed length keywords to avoid corrupting the file and Subversion did a fine
job. I tried the keywords both on the actual document and in the file
properties area (using custom properties).

So my question is: is this feature safe on non-text files such as MS Office
files? Or will I get into trouble and corrupt files? Has anyone implemented
this successfully?

Thanks in advance,
