I don't think these should be ignored.  .gz and .bz2 doesn't say
anything about the type/contents of the file, just how it's stored and
there might actually be reasons for storing them in binary mode in CVS.

These are sometimes stored in CVS so that not everybody needs to have
the right version of texinfo.

But I think all the others are good and should be added to the ignore
