There might be ways to trick Subversion but I wouldn't advocate using any of them. The UUID is there to help you uniquely identify a repository. If you've dumped a repository, changed the dumpfile, and loaded it somewhere else, it is no longer the same repository, and it deserves a new UUID and everything that comes with that.
