Thanks for that.

If there is anything that can be said about you here, it is that you have
been overenthusiastic about importing data that you found. You clearly have
proven that you were willing to correct your errors and willing to recognize
them. There is nothing embarrassing here.
For example, a project like this
http://osmose.openstreetmap.fr/clc/cgi-bin/index.py could be useful. For the
Corine import, some polygons were not imported automatically because they
were overlapping with current feature or they didn't contain a landuse that
we though could be translated without having a look at. Someone in the
community then created this map allowing everyone to easily add point
graphically. If you had the josm remote control plugin enabled, it would
directly open the point in JOSM allowing you to modify it if necessary
before choosing whether to import it or not.
It could be an interesting way of doing that EPA import. In our case, the
polygon is stored in postgis, and the OSM file is generated on the fly.
It is at least a good thing you want to make things better, so thanks.
