Maybe I'm not interpreting "reveal" heavily enough.

*nods* I voted 'Do not', without actually disagreeing with what you say here. I think dreams are a warmed-over mishmash of memory and imagination, and hence don't give any information you might not just as plausibly have got from memory and/or imagination while awake.

Occasionally I've had a really good idea in a dream, but not often enough to make me think dreams are an especially good source of cool ideas – it seems much more likely that that was just a good idea that I happened to have while dreaming instead of having it (or a similar thought) some other time. And yes, perhaps just occasionally a dream has made me think 'hmm, I might be a bit stressed' a little before my waking behaviour gave me the same idea, but not enough before (or often enough) to make dreams any kind of Magical Oracle into your Inner Psyche.
