Maybe I'm miss-understanding what you mean by passes.  I was under the
impression that you mean doing an initial import, then an update after
seeing the result, another update, etc...

So instead you are proposing to initially generate a seperate osm file
which won't be imported into osm until it is the finished result?
Have I understood correctly this time?

BTW - this includes the implicit offer to help generate such an
overlay for checking - not just that you should do more work!
