Hm, I'm not sure about that. The general charter of pg_dump is to
produce a dump that will replicate the state of the database.
Editorializing on it in order to make it more likely to reload in a
different version of PG seems to violate that charter.

I think the current state where pg_upgrade just complains about those
functions and tells you to remove them by hand is far safer than
creating blind spots in pg_dump.
