Fuel costs money.

Airlines do not want to carry any more fuel than they have to - because carrying fuel costs money too. So the only reason an aircraft carries more fuel than necessary for the next leg is because the fuel at the destination is expensive (see 'why the UK doesn't tax aviation fuel'). So here they carry extra fuel - but they won't dump it because they need it for the next leg.

The only reason that fuel dumping would be necessary to avoid a heavy landing is if they have an emergency that demands an immediate landing shortly after take off.

Your statement that they may land heavy because they are carrying enough fuel to stack is completely wrong - they carry contingency fuel and diversion fuel but neither of these is enough to cause a heavy landing if they don't need to use it.
