Indeed.  In fact, Stefan's suggestion is just a slightly fancy (and
less portable) way of having an executable script which does

  /foo/bar/emacs --dump-file=/wherever/something.pdmp

This is something users with certain needs and workflows may wish
doing, but I see no reason why we as a project would need to force
everyone on using such a setup.  I see no advantages in it that would
justify it.
