Were the shapes (needlessly) over-digitized? I saw this with some of the 
CASIL polygons, and with much of Kern County, where huge reductions 
(thousands of nodes per square mile) were possible with little effect on 
rendering, using the JOSM "simplify". Hopefully there is something similar 
available in the import tool collection.
