It looks to me like you're correct.

For example, here's a couple of files from commons-digester:


   # a file expected to be text
   svn proplist $BASE/digester/trunk/build.xml
   -->  svn:keywords
   -->  svn:eol-style

   # a file expected to be binary
   svn proplist $BASE/digester/trunk/xdocs/images/logo.jpg
   --> svn:executable  [hmm .. this is probably not right ;-]
   --> svn:mime-type
   svn propget svn:mime-type $BASE/digester/trunk/xdocs/images/logo.jgp
   --> application/octet-stream

I'm not entirely sure which "examples.dataList.jsp" file you're 
referring to (a full url would be nice) but file
certainly is binary ("svn propget svn:mime-type" reports 

I also see that proplist on file
reports that it is marked executable (though at least not binary). I 
think the myfaces SVN properties are in need of a cleanup...
