Yes, typical SVN use cases are of no concern.

One case I could imagine where this might matter is some automated
service which records user-provided files in SVN.
Another case is where people use SVN to version home directories
which include a Downloads folder with files such as images from
the internet.

That's all a bit far fetched, though I know of one person using SVN
to keep /home under version control.

And nobody has been asking for it to be enabled?
