It should. I haven't looked at your list but be aware that (contrary to
what some people think) the planet dump does NOT possess referential
integrity. For example, if a node is created and added to a relation
around Wednesday afternoon, it is quite likely that the node section has
already been dumped to file at this time (thus the node will not be
included in the planet file) but the relations are not yet dumped (thus
the node will be referenced by a relation).
