[Imports] how do i get a mapper to engage with the community over mass imports?

i live in auckland, nz. a mapper  here is currently importing a giant
data set of building outlines for auckland, by my estimate 300,000+
ways. until yesterday, on my insistence, he'd made no mention of this on
any of the relevant discussion lists (local nz chapter, osm imports
list) and as of one hour ago  was uploading more data.
from what i can see (although i may be wrong, please point out any
errors if so), there's no engagement with the community, local or
otherwise, and apparent disregard for established processes around
importing as set out on the wiki:
it bothers me more that he's an openly acknowledged employee of a local
company, koordinates, who engage him amongst other things to add data to
osm - it looks like more than just a single bull-headed individualistic
person, but an active policy of the company.
what to do?
What the world needs now, is love sweet love
