I think it is still important give notification n to the imports mailing list when an import is going to be made. The whole point of the import mailing list is to keep everyone updated on which importa are being made and the procedure clearly states it should be done. 

Even if its just one email saying this import is happening in two weeks i think it is still important to keep people in the loop. You never know too some people might raise a red flag to one import. I know personally in North Carolina not all counties address data is created equal. Some is extremely accurate some counties haven't put any effort into it. We should just be careful.
