Jonathan Gray commented on HBASE-1684:

@Schubert What do you mean just use the normal API? These are MapReduce jobs. You are referring to wanting to do imports/exports at the HDFS level instead? (that is not this issue)

Bulk importing can be done with HBASE-48, but it is not yet fully-featured (only works on single families, doesn't work into existing tables, etc)

Bulk exporting at HFile level is going to require some form of freezing/snapshotting so it's 100% safe and consistent to do that (though it's still possible now, and we're doing it in production here). There is an old issue for this as well, HBASE-50.
