I really don't know now, and I also didn't really know at the time when I 
wrote (part of) the importing code. I vaguely recall this Destroy/Commit 
sequence had to be used there because otherwise the transactions didn't 
disappear as intended. However, even at that time I couldn't find out which 
one was the intended way, and it was sufficient for me to see this work.
