Very good point. Honestly, I don't know if Finnish OSM community is big
enough. At least we need to discuss about this. 

I think we can't import all NLS's data to OSM. But at least something. And
I'd like to do it practical, organized and documented way. Unless we're
situation as we're currently with Corine Land Cover data in Finland (please,
don't look Finnish forestry coverage ;-)

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?
