  When using dump to generate level 0 dumps which are then rsync'ed
  to a remote machine, the fact that the dump date is stored with
  each header (inode) record makes rsync significantly less efficient
  than necessary. This also applies to inode access times when they
  are not important data to retain. When implementing an offsite
  backup solution of this type, these dates in particular are not
  important, especially if it prevents effective offsite backups.
