And why?

When you start with "Get the same release-version of mysql running on the target platform" and dump/load what's the point in playing around with dump-files when you hava binary datafiles which can be used on the destination

and no - i am not talking about theory

i migrated a hosting-infrastructure with dozens of servers from OSX PPC to OSX Intel and later to Linux x86_64 with just rsync the mysql-datadir
