.doc file concerns

We have some word docs in CVS as binary files.4 or 5
developers will be accessing it and changing it from
time to time.
I have a few queries.
I came to know that CVS does not know how to diff .doc
files treated as binary files.So what happens when we
run update?
I came to know that CVS will just commit the newly
changed file without diff/merge;so with every commit
the size keeps doubling?If some lines have been
intentionally removed by a person and another
developer has a previously checked out version with
those lines present and then tries to commit after
adding some more lines,then what happens?
Also is there any size up to which cvs can have .doc
file under version control without affecting
Any alternate way to handle .doc files?
