...and you are wrong.

By definition, sync is the process of making sure that two or more
locations contain the *same* up-to-date files:

By definition, import & export are the processes of creating *new*
external files of *different* formats.

Again, including import/export functionality in a sync app does NOT
mean that import/export is a subset of sync. To say that is exactly
the same as saying that a word processor is a subset of email, or that
audio equipment is a subset of automobiles.
