I was waiting for others to chime in, but my take is that if you are
familiar with the park and are reviewing for sanity and
non-conflicting-ness all data that you are uploading, then that sounds
ok.  The "imports are usually bad because usually people mess up" vibe
is about adding data that no human looks at, duplicates or conflicts,
and ends up being low quality that it's a net minus.  But you may be
doing something that is closer to "manual mapping that is copying a (PD)
data source".
