dconf load

I am under the impression that a person can dump the user's entire dconf registry to a text file, edit the text file, and load the entire text file. Yet I am unable to do that. I can dump the registry, make no changes, and still not be able to load the text file.

cd .config/dconf
dconf dump / > user.txt
dconf load / < user.txt

When I run dump load I always get the help usage text: dconf loadDIR.

Is this at all possible or can only small sections of the registry be loaded?

I spent time tweaking a user environment and would like to copy the dconf file to a new user account. I want to change a handful of keys that reference the user name before copying the file to the new user. Hence the desire to dump to a text file, edit, and load.
