This is useful when you have tons of data and at least a couple of
people interested, this is not the case in many of the imports so
perhaps you don't have to always suggest the same approach :)
Additionally splitting the data in smaller files creates more work
with joining the nodes at the boundaries.
In my experience 20MB of roads data is an amount that a single person
can go through in detail in between 1 and 2 weeks time, assuming
there's already pre-existing data in OSM which needs to be
deduplicated / decided on which version to keep, and roads junctions
fixed before the final upload.
