I agree with your comments, and had previously said that a fuel dump wouldn't have left evidence on the surface to be detected by the SAR satellite radar. It has been suggested to me in a PM that an attempt could have been made to dump the Trim Tank (if it was even thought about!), though a transfer to the center tank would possibly have yielded a better CG result.
