I think this is in part irrelevant.
We may have or possibly already have data files that look like text.
We don't want git to mess with files, or at the very least only for a subset that we explicitly reviewed and considered it desirable.
So if there is a way to do that I think that would be good.
Assuming it doesn't open up a risk of people by accident committing files containing CRLF at least.
