When a user wants to add another slave to a replication setup, one often copies data from an existing slave to a new slave. In such case, mysqldump cannot retrieve slave data from the existing slave well unlike --master-data option. Having --slave-data option which reads the current master binlog position using SHOW SLAVE STATUS from an existing slave comes in handy!

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Please add an option like below:

shell> mysqldump [options] --slave-data[=1|2]
