When somebody is doing a full-import, clean is what almost all users are
going to want.  If you're wanting to do full-import without cleaning,
then you are in the minority.  It is perhaps a fairly large minority,
but still not the majority.

Also, once you move into production, you should not be using the admin
UI for this.  You should be calling the DIH handler directly with HTTP
from another source, which might be a shell script using curl, or a
full-blown program in another language.
