The approach I'm thinking of is an editor could choose to load in a few
boundaries while they map, so instead of tracing from aerial imagery, they
may choose to import the parcel boundaries data and then use that as the
raw geometry which they add attributes to. Make it opt in for mappers as
part of the regular editing process. So no mass import, but an a-hoc
gradual migration to using VicMap's property boundaries where they would
help OSM.

This could be through the JOSM RemoteControl import command
where you load a map on a website, click the parcels you want and load them
straight into JOSM.
