The answer is likely no, because I don't believe there is a guarantee
that the planet dump contains exactly the commits of a certain set of
diffs, so I suspect you are asking for something that the planet dump
itself doesn't actually provide  (Matt Amos would be able to give more
information on that, see
But that doesn't matter in a practical sense, as you will always roll
back a bit the 1st time you start applying diffs and from then on your
planet will exactly contain a diff or not.

There is perhaps an argument to be made that actual mirrors should make
a binary copy. In any case there is no argument to be made for the
~1'000 downloads that start shortly every week after the plant dump has
been produced, and of which for weird reasons 25% are actually
downloading the compressed XML file (which is 30% larger).
