Well, that, or provide a tool that fixes broken dump files enough to be
acceptable to svnadmin load. I don't know if we have such a tool
already (can contrib/server-side/svncutter do it?) - and indeed is
there a canonical obviously correct interpretation for all the various
things we check for that we didn't used to?

Hmmm, even if svncutter can do it, it's currently in contrib, so we
won't ship it in tarballs. The license header looks like it may not
pass ASF muster, but I suppose ESR could be prevailed upon to permit
the standard boilerplate. If this is something we'd want to move to
