Much, much better IMO. I dread the idea of any automated imports for the 
UK into OSM. Tools to automate tracing while being manually aware of 
what is already there and the flaws in the automation is so much better 
than trying to import and screwing up what's already there, duplicating 
stuff and adding poor quality automation flaws.
