I do not know whether anything can be done during dump/load time, but
note that svn:log is an unversioned property that stores commit
message for a revision, and you can change it at any time using

svn propset --revprop -r

(or svn propedit)

Note, that you need to create a pre-revprop-change hook to allow such changes.
