MIME Type for SVG images in SVN config

recently I started working on SVG images and wonder what MIME
type I should have SVN ascribe for *.SVG files per config.

Generally the regular MIME type is clear:

*.svg = svn:mime-type=image/svg+xml
*.svgz = svn:mime-type=image/svg+xml

and for the latter compressed format there is no doubt about.
However, according to the book SVN would handle the
uncompressed *.SVG as binary and therefore unmergable, too,
even though basically they are just text files. So what to do about?

At this early point I merely work on SVG files just with the editor
(Inkscape), but supposedly that will not always be the case.

In the archive I found a May 2004 thread which finally suggested an
exception for the */*+xml type to be encoded into SVN, but the
current manual (1.4.6) says nothing in this direction.

Also does anyone have good recommendations for EOL setting?
Inkscape creates UTF-8 files with LF. I work on Windows.
