I don't think he's talking about repository storage; he's talking about
merging contents during 'update' and 'merge'. Dennis, I don't know
anything about docx format. If it's a line-based text format, you're
probably okay; if it's something else, you're probably not okay. Can
you point us to a URL about it?

Is it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Docx? If so, Subversion doesn't know
how to merge it, but you could configure Subversion to invoke an
external merge tool to handle those merges, as you could with any format
for which such a tool exists.
