Then, isn't the solution to build better tools instead of duplicating the
information ?

Maybe something like Crotos ( http://zone47.com/crotos/ ) but for monument.
@Magnus : sorting Autolist results wood be great (I'm too puzzled by the «
haphazard order »).

@Jane : It's kind of counterintuitive but in the long and the short terms,
manual list are a harder and messier way to build list (that's why Marteen
build the Erfgoed databse in the first place) and that's a barrier to entry
