No, the baseline can be obtained from the previous revisions.
"dump" does not behave as you say: try it!

Note: even for the ChangeLog file on which I'm seeing too much output,
one doesn't have the full text (some parts are missing and the baseline
cannot be recreated from the incremental dump only); and for the other
files in the dump, I just get the difference (n):(n-1) as expected.

  "The second useful option is --deltas. This option causes svnadmin
  dump to, instead of emitting full-text representations of file
  contents and property lists, emit only deltas of those items against
  their previous versions."

So, this is a bit like diff, but on binary data.
