Any user of this? (For the record, I don't see any other mail except this one)

Since it's an address, I would like to group them together, i.e. put
after DUMP_PREFIX_ADDRESS.
Perhaps even add _ADDRESS to DUMP_PREFIX_UNHASHED, but this maybe too long.

Yeah, exactly, here you use different ordering.

In both cases I would rather use colon and list one per line. What do you think?

Here is a third type of ordering, can you please be consistent?

As above.

As above.
