Is there more info available on this project?  It's unclear what you
are trying to do.  What use case requires a 10k+ line .htaccess file?
What input would generate that?  A concern is that we basically have a
few people that approve updates by hand at the moment.  Mostly all use
cases are fairly simple at the moment too.  The complex .htaccess
files are mostly due to type negotiation.

As far as csv input, I think various people have had thoughts on that
sort of direction but no one has fleshed out the ideas.  Many of the
current simple use cases could be put in a csv/json/yaml/toml file
that gets converted to a .htaccess file.  I imagine that sort of thing
would be integrated into w3id setup itself vs something external that
generates PRs.
