This is similiar to how we intent the import process to look like. Not a
strictly mechanical import, but having easy access to the buildings and
addresses in JOSM to assist in mapping the area. It's common to want to
adjust the surrounding roads based on the satellite imagery and GPS
traces while working on the buildings and addresses in the area, add
additional POIs, etc.

Tagging objects with its respective source seems appropriate in this
case. Were the import fully automated using only the changeset seems
more appropriate.
