This is exactly how I would like things to go -- I'd gladly share my dive
sites in my usual dive locations, but I'd really like to get a copy of
someone else's dive sites for a trip to a location I've never been.  That
would be really powerful.

I'd import the dive sites in my personal log, even if they aren't in my
native language. If it is a dive site that I actual use, I'd probably
translate or re-write the description to fit my needs.
