The answer has been provided two times, none of them is
quoted above or below. :-)

I may repeat: It is permissible _unless_ you are running
the dump program on a live partition using the -L option.

As the question has been answered, it's fully valid to
suggest the use of the proper timmy, erm terminology,
with colon-minus-close-paren appended. :-)

It seems to be permissible, as its absence doesn't seem
to have any significant effect. As it has been explained
in the quote from "man dump" regarding the -L option
(again, not quoted here), in case .snap/ is required,
it will be created.
