Would now be a prudent time to ask the TS ('KKL Import') why he is 
uploading such a huge dataset[1] in one operation? To me that sounds 
like just asking for trouble, and trouble is what he got.

If you upload 600k nodes, before you get on to uploading the ways that 
use those nodes, you should absolutely _not_ be surprised when someone 
comes along and deletes one of those nodes before you upload the 
relevant way. The chances of something like this happening rise 
immensely with time and the amount of floating nodes you're accumulating.
