Exactly. Since svnrdump works purely on the RA layer, authz should be
taken care of for free.

Again, I expect that access control/ security is automatically taken
care of in the RA layer. `svnrdump load` is just like a user making
some changes and committing them one by one except the author and
timestamp in the dumpfile are preserved. Why would you want to block

No, the UUID of the repository cannot be changed over the RA API.
