The concern you raised at the time, from my recollection, was that I had
added a new set of TAP tests post feature-freeze for pg_dump and there
was concern that it might cause an issue for packagers.

I don't recall a concern being raised about the tests themselves, and I
intentionally worked to make sure this landed before feature-freeze to
avoid that issue, though I believe we should actually be looking to try
to add tests post feature-freeze too, as we work to test things prior to
the release.
