What you describe is generally true for *all* XML-based formats, merging
is risky when using (line-based) tools that are developed for merging
source code.

AFAICS there are two options:

1. Make git treat .dsx files as executables, i.e. never merge them
automatically, or
2. Configure git to use a .dsx/XML-aware tool for merging (see
gitattributes(5) for details)
