Great. Then this feature type will not be maintained and should not be 
rotting away in OSM!

Great. Then ways should be found to work together on the map creation 
level - make a map that shows our data and their data. Do not try to 
import their data into OSM.

Until now I haven't heart much good about that community but maybe a few 
million $$ can really buy you one. Until we have those few million $$, 
let's not try to synthesize communities out of thin air.
