That's no longer true. CVSNT can store diffs of binary files too... -kB.

Again, not true. It's a proprietary format, that's true, and complex enough
to allow for merging without its own editor. You would not be able to merge
a complex document even if it was in a open XML standard, without something
that can understand the format. Source code is far easier to manage.
