file is binary even when svn:mime-type even when mime-attribute charset is set

    For example, if a file's svn:mime-type property is set to a
non-text MIME type
    (generally, something that doesn't begin with text/, though there
are exceptions),
    Subversion will assume that the file contains binary—that is, not
    human-readable—data. One of the benefits that Subversion typically provides
    is contextual, line-based merging of changes received from the server during
    an update into your working file

Where are these exceptions listed?

Can this rule be changed so that any mime-type that specifies a charset, e.g.
is recognized as text since a charset indicates that lines can be identified by
decoding using that charset and looking for the appropriate code points.
