I very much doubt that you could do that portably, let alone allow
repeated dumping after the initial one.

I really don't see why we should waste our energy on making the Emacs
package one file less (out of 3000 it already has).  There's nothing
wrong with having a file we load at startup before we get a fully
functional Emacs.  It certainly isn't a "hassle".
