Hi, Christoph:

I guess it would be very surprising to anyone if one-time imports are 
acceptable, but not imports where a group of users check every single 
object, and correct/align/delete each of them before uploading.

I can't really imagine any import approach that assures a better Q&A, 
and be more consistent with general mapping in OSM and respectful with 
the community, than an open and collaborative manual import.
