I'm totally agree with this; nowadays I always use --dry-run with
--no-grafts option.  As a user I expect that --dry-run means no building
at all.

BTW it's not just about ‘guix package --dry-run --upgrade’, it relates
to all commands, for example ‘guix build --dry-run foo’, etc.

OTOH, if a future ‘--dry-run’ would mean what ‘--dry-run --no-grafts’
