We could turn this into an advantage of Open Data and OSM. Validation
of other datasets makes them more accurate and in turn useful to
everyone, including the original publisher.

But I think we should also add the other data (after other validation,
like de duplication and null island), possibly like the naptan import
with, naptan:verified, or a more generic import_verified. That could
easily be fitted into on the ground verification tools like
StreetComplete. Or perhaps a more visible option is to make notes for
the ones that aren't matched to existing data allowing local mappers to
check and add them manually.

I think of MapRoulette as being more "arm chair mapping", I think you'd
get people just adding it without any validation.
