Database Update: Append

I'd love to see the option to be able to append data to existing fields when doing a data import.  It would most likely be easiest to limit this to multi-select data fields and text fields.  I would imagine the logic to be something like <if current data is different from update, append using specified selector, unless it's blank - then just add the value.>

How will this idea be used?

We have many "shared" contacts that span the many businesses that operate at Intertek.  Currently, doing a new import typically requires an export of the existing database to look for existing contacts so that we can merge the taxonomy values between the existing record and incoming import.  Otherwise, the existing value gets overwritten and the previous business looses visibility into their contact.
