Actually, you can plug in domain-specific diff/merge tools into git (OpenOffice documents were a named use case for this). Obviously the merge tools for binary stuff need their own way to do conflict resolution as well.
Git is exactly as efficient at handling binary files as handling text files: you have to go back to CVS to find something that isn't good at binary files.
