It seems there are a whole suite of tools for taking OSM data which _have already been extracted_ from the database defined in this repository and importing into _other tools_, but I haven't come across anything but `osmium` for importing data directly into the database defined in this repository.

This is because there is no real use case that would require this (and actually reloading original OSM data is not something you would want to try except in a dire emergency), you are far better of with normal backups.

imposm does something completely different.

Dropping osmosis is a policy decision, explicit or not, it would be a small thing to pay somebody for further maintenance of osmosis. osmium is likely going to be taking over some of the functionality, but in the end suffers from the same issues (bus factor one).
