Sure:

A dumpfile is the perfect intermediate stage for repository
conversions. It allows the administrator to run the data through
filters if necessary, to easily put it an already existing repository,
etc. It also is going to make debuggability & maintenance of cvs2svn
a lot simpler, I think.

(Or was your question more along the lines of "Why are you choosing to
work on the repository converter now?", in which case the answer is
that it will help CollabNet to get the repository converter finished.)
