You can create an OSM doc without uploading it.  Perhaps create theOSM doc
with the fence with all the attributes converted into OSM compatible data.
 you could link to this doc on the wiki page for the upload.

Make sure you follow the guidelines.

You are already doing a great job by communicating here on the imports
mailling list.

I think if at all possible you should try to incorporate the data you have
into the data already in the map.  What sort of stuff have you changed that
would be difficult to sync up?
