I spoke with Eliezer, who said he can try and do this post import. The only outstanding issues for the final import are now:

 1.  Move return values into their own section — if Max can. If not, Eliezer can create the section and we can move it manually.
 2.  Move the content currently in the javascript namespace into the Meta:* namespace.

Max & Eliezer: would you kindly let us know if this isn’t the case?

Thanks much!

If doing this after the fact (but still automatically) is very much possible and as easy, I have no problem with such an approach.
If it is one of those things that would eventually be forgotten (or less prioritized and thus delayed for years), then I think this should delay the import.

Perhaps this is not such a big issue for everyone else, I do not know.

Hi, PhistucK–

It's not clear to me what alternative you're proposing that should delay the import.

I would prefer to go forward with the import and solve this afterward, in whatever way is most efficient.

Oh, that is a very frustrating work. I did as much as I could with /dom
and it was a real pain in the ass to do when the information seems to be
structured so well to be done automatically.

    Hi, PhistucK–

    While I'm sympathetic to your reasoning, I think that's something we
    can do manually after the import is done, rather than get it perfect
    from the start. We need to get closure on this import.

        Why are the members listed manually instead of being drawn from the
        hierarchy or from a property like in /dom?

        For example -
