No, the point of it would be to not have pg_dump scripts overriding
installed-by-default ACLs.  A newer PG version might have different
ideas about what those should be.  I don't think this is exactly an
academic concern, either: wouldn't a likely outcome of your default-roles
work be that some built-in functions have different initial ACLs than
they do today?  Good luck with that, if pg_upgrade overwrites those
ACLs with the previous-version values.
