Well, question is if most work is done manually at time of import, or
if most work is already done in the data being imported.

I was not involved in buildings import, but as far as I can say...

In first versions of the czech building "import", users were tracing
outlines from scanned maps. Quite substantial task, not too different
from tracing roads in satellite images. (And then automation got
better and better and then we got digital maps).

Requiring separate account for task such as that would be "a bit too
cumbersome" for users doing the "import".
