Thanks for your feedback, here are my answers...

An extract of the original SHP files(for Riau archipielago province for
example) can be found here: https://github.com/capiscuas/osm-playground ,
also it contains the converted .osm file that would be imported to OSM
after comparing with the current data in place already.

UNICEF and the owner of the data:BPS statistics agency share a COUNTRY
PROGRAMME ACTION PLAN(CPAP). The email answer from BPS giving explicit
permision to UNICEF to do the necesary changes in OSM using their data
should be enough. There are precedents in OSM imports with explicit
permission through emails being sufficient. Correct if I am wrong and
please provide what sort of document/signature/email response shall we ask
BPS to make it official then. Thanks.

The current boundaries of Indonesia can be displayed in real time here:

Yantisa (which is in CC) from HOT Indonesia contacted me to help them
converting the SHP files into .osm and import those missing parts into the
OSM server.

Best Regards.
