Some years ago, we had a data donation, here in the United Kingdom, of
data on cycle shops. These were imported into a tool which (if memory
serves) enabled users to compare them to existing entries, and import
the data to them if useful, or add new objects if necessary. I recall
that it didn't take long for the UK community to process them.

Can that tool not be repurposed, and thereby avoid the friction that
imports like this seem sadly to cause?
