Imports aren't always bad. Consider the equivalent case of one or
more mappers who worked heavily in your area 2 years ago. You might
discover errors and lack of new roads and come to the same conclusion.

Agreed, things should be joined properly. But for all its warts, the
import is much faster to get things started. I drive around with
Skobbler enabled whenever possible to check for Goofball driving
instructions. Goofball driving instructions are most often based in
Goofball map data, which is easily fixed.
