An import of this magnitude will obviously be considerably more
complicated that just the conversion/uploading.

You'll see some of the issues mentioned on the wiki
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import, and also discussed on the
imports mailing list.
http://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/imports/

Perhaps you could start with a bit of a plan as to how you're going to
handle overlaps and existing suburbs, coastline and river boundaries,
etc.

Then we can review the plan, and may be able to help with suggestions
and some aspects of the conversion.

Ian.
