I updated the .gitattributes file to include the binary formats I am 
aware of, including all that I found in the POI repository.

This is not promised to be comprehensive and people should watch for
other formats and check that .gitattributes is current.

Finally, I decline to take the initiative to create a folder of test
documents in the current repository.
