Most people prefer if their databases can be restored even if they have
some problems (like data not passing some check constrains, or some
objects not accessible in dialect 1 ) than to risk the lost of whole database.

You can e.g. set restored database to dialect 3 (using gfix), alter inappropriate
object names (e.g. by alter table command, or by copying data to new table),
and then set the dialect back to 1 (if you prefer).
