That's one of those 'if it hurts, don't do it...' things. While you
always need to know if something is text or not to handle local text
conventions in a usable way, it would seem awkward for svn to assume
that revision contents are binary unless told otherwise, but have the
opposite convention for svn:* properties. Better to just never allow
non-text there.
