No, it would not. The server would have to maintain its own working
copy and commit a second revision immediately after a revision that
added a file without a mime type.

It is better to make the committer use the proper mime type in the
first place. You can automate this on the client side using the auto-
props section of the config file. You can enforce it on the server
side by writing a pre-commit hook to reject any commit that does not
match your requirements.
