What is so hard to get about the fact that sync apps are relatively
huge, complex, resource-hungry apps that are completely separate from
the apps using the data? Why install a third app, when import & export
are incredibly easy to implement in the other apps?

There are two basic facts of common scenarios that you continue to ignore.
1) Sync conduits frequently don't exist.
2) Import & Export are easy to implement, sync is hard.
