I've heard this somewhere before.
It's very ironic that something that's is known to have been extant in the great pyramid building age is ignored (the Pyramid Texts), while something that is of indefinite origin is seized as proof of orthodoxy.
The "Dialogue of Ipuwur" also is translated in varying ways especially at these few critical lines which gives them indeterminant referents. The lines are very interesting but I wouldn't want to have too much dependent on them.
