Actually... I don't think this should be requirement. Import
guidelines are not a holy text, people should follow them, but...
what is next. Should they also include a poem explaining how
import guidelines are great and make openstreetmap more useful?

While you may find it troubling, requiring such waivers is going to
make imports impossible. (And openstreetmap useless).
