Could we please not let this drift into a general discussion on the 
merits of imports and the usual politically motivated campaigning 
without interest to learn something new and maybe improve the ways we 
enter new data into the OSM database (to use a generic term including 
both imports and craft mapping).

You can already see people opening up with a full barrage of preemptive 
smoke grenades based on the mere hint of you there might be substantial 
data to back up the reasoning on which Frederik based his suggestion 
for a certain approach to doing an import.  I don't think this is an 
approach you seriously want to support.
