[Imports] Bad imports

I recently discovered a number of bad imports, but found out it's hard to
discuss those, and keep track of those discussions, as there's no central
platform where that could happen.

There are f.e. changeset discussions, but when the importer doesn't answer,
you don't get notified anymore, and nobody else will keep an eye on it.

So I started a wiki page to gather information about bad imports, together
with an initial procedure to handle those (giving some times to allow
discussion and cleanups).

see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bad_imports

I already documented some bad imports there, but not yet who I contacted
(though I contacted two importers via changeset messages, and that will be
hard to find back if they don't react).

If any of you find bad imports, I should ask you to also add them to the
list, and regularly keep an eye on the list. When that list gets used more
often, we won't lose track of those discussions anymore.

If you have any remarks on the procedure, feel free to raise concerns. But
I like some hard dates as else people wonder whether it would be ok to
revert it already or not. And I think the current terms are reasonable.
