We cannot import all data in the world that is legally possible to
import. Is there reason to believe that the community will benefit from
such an import? We should not repeat past mistakes where tons and tons
of data have been imported just to make the map look nice, and now
there's nobody to care for it. Is the community in Finland large enough
to maintain the data once it is imported?
