Well - i can only give you my assessment here - i can't force you to
concur with it.
As already said two times a proper import review will only be possible
with the data available for inspection and open discussion. I strongly
object the very idea of contorting the import review process by
limiting its inherent openness. The OSM project is founded on the idea
of openness and free data and this means open and freely accessible to
anyone and not just to a select group who have agreed to some third
Or in other words: if the data is only free after it has been imported
into the OSM database there is no way importing it in compliance with
the import guidelines and the contributor terms.
