What's the use of the import then? If you have to go and track every
road, and walk around the shore of every lake, and wander down every
creek, then you'll have GPS data. Most of Canada will be a blank slate
as we do not have enough bodies to capture all of the data manually.

The whole concept of importing data was to help fill in the areas
where there are no OSM mappers.
