usually the answer to this is we do not want to be merely redistributing authoritative data that OSM mappers can not improve. If there is an expert curated dataset of essentially unverifiable data, why would we want to import this into OSM? Can’t the people who need this data keep it in a parallel database and join it as needed? This will also have the advantage that the authoritative data remains official, because nobody is modifying it.
