My anecdotal evidence shows the opposite: people are more excited about OSM
in Chicago with the buildings import from last year. I've had several
mappers at my (admittedly infrequent) meetups that are excited to find
their own building and improve it. Existing OSM mappers were excited about
having more detail in the area and having a base for improving POI mapping.

Having said that, there are some new mappers that get confused about how iD
handles with the density of buildings in Chicago. Mostly it's just slow on
all but the fastest machines, but sometimes they accidentally click on
stuff that wouldn't be a problem if there was less data.
