FWIW the carrier I work for will take an overweight landing and the
subsequent inspection over dumping fuel most of the time.  The cost of
the fuel is one thing but the fall out from the EPA is quite another.
The P&D valve on JT8's had to have the "dump" part of it deactivated and
RB211's had to have a burner drain recovery system installed in the late
70's.  It seems that to much kerosene was getting dumper on the ground
during engine shut down.
