Risk of managing binary files with CVS

Hi all,
I have a repository with only source code, and now it is necessary to add binary files.
I have made some test, adding files with the -kb options (cva add -kb <binary_file>) for avoiding keyword substitution and ending conversion. It is look like  to work properly, but I donĀ“t know the posibble consecuences of add a binary file without this flag.
Can be some damage on sorce files if I add a binary file without -kb ooption? Could the repository be crashed or corrupted?
I've would like to know the posible risk of introducing unproperly binary files in a repository.
Thanks in advance
