Unfortunately starting with a given PostGIS version some output
functions (in addition to input functions) added simple checks
for validity. ST_AsBinary must be one of them.

Canonical input and output functions were fixed in latest 1.4, 1.5
and trunk, to allow for dump/reloads in presence of invalid data,
see http://trac.osgeo.org/postgis/ticket/411

Whether ST_AsBinary should also be fixed is debatable.
I suggest you file a ticket and continue the discussion there.
