What you says applies to every import not PD, CC0 or PDDL licensed, as
stated here:

I can't see why Vincent's proposed import is different from other imports
we already did in the past (ODbL, CC-BY or OGL licensed).

Either we deal with each import with current rules or we forbid every
import whose data is not PD, CC0 or PDDL licensed.
