To satisfy my curiosity ;-), what is an 'INSPIRE dataset' and how is 
this useful for import in OSM?

I am aware of the INSPIRE directive and that it was established with the 
aim to create unified standards for data exchange.  I am however not 
aware that anything substantial came out of it till now that would 
really help import of official data into OSM (like unified licensing 
terms or common standards of quality or data semantics).
