I'm sorry, I'll try to explain. I'm not talking about upstream (or
transformed) data verification but post import quality assurance.

After importing address data, you will likely discover that:
* some road names previously inserted in OSM are wrong or they are spelled
slightly different;
* some roads are already in OSM but they don't have a name (but now you can
get it from the nearby house addresses);
* there are missing roads that have house addresses around.

I think you should have a process to catch these issues and fix them.
