you are right but:
our date migration is done in iteration steps.
there are first (and still!) a lot of encoding, mapping, ... trouble.
and the researcher are still adding new publications to the old repo.
so i like to have an approach where everything is done in ONCE,
so that we can migrate the data as many time we need, just with one "click".
