Dear Massimo,

I'll leave the answer to the first to more knowledgable people.

Yes sure. I routinely do that, as a simple way of keeping the binary
files that are part of a project (e.g., binary data files) or, even,
storing compressed dirs (tar.gz or tar.bz2)  as a way of storing and
moving around large, not changing, directories. I've never tried to
get anything from a diff of a binary file, because I assume it will be
meaningless to me. But keeping them in the repos, and noticing when
they change, is not an issue.
