I think that even imports that are well executed *technically* are 
usually bad because they worsen the ratio of "mapper hours available to 
maintain data" to "amount of data requiring maintenance".

Imports should only be allowed if there is a realistic expecation that 
the presence of the imported data will lead to a growth in our community 
of about the number of people that would have been required to survey 
the imported data in the first place.
