I doubt it. You are probably considering the wrong part of the GFDL
with regards to what they are doing. Suffice to say the foundation
isn't actually required to credit you in any way shape or form with
regards to the dumps (since they are effectively verbatim copying and
since there are no cover texts section 3 doesn't place any significant
further requirements).

You may not like this but that would be inconsistent with your claims
to prefer the GFDL over CC-BY-SA 3.0.
