Adding a small notice re "Created by Upload Wizard"
I have been having the odd issue with editors that see the empty "n.a." fields that are no wholly required to meet NFC complain that these have to be filled in to meet NFC. I have tried pointing them to past discussions here where its been agreed those are not mandatory fields and the "n.a."s are fine.
I think it might be helpful that on the upload, if this wizard could spit out an additional line after the rational tables along the lines "This rationale was generated through the Upload Wizard, which by design may leave some fields as unfilled but otherwise meets the minimum requirements for NFC. If you make any edits to this rationale, please remove this text." This would make it clear that we broadly do not have problems with missing "n.a." fields that are generated by the Upload Wizard, but as soon as you make any rationale changes, you should try to complete those better. --Masem (t) 23:05, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
