Wouldn't replacing the *.svg files with compressed SVGs also solve the problem? 
If git is anyway told to treat the SVGs as binary, then keeping them as 
uncompressed text files makes little sense to me. Of course, there may be valid 
exceptions, but I'm certain that in general replacing the uncompressed SVGs 
with compressed SVGs would be fine.
