Editing a field manually is less risky if one of the fields's value to edit is the primary key. Indeed, as it is the primary key that is used to determine if a contact must be added or modified during an import, if the key has been changed, the contact will not be overwritten on import. A common example is a client that uses a new email. Importing this client with a new email will create a second profile for that client. To avoid duplicates, you can, when possible, edit the contact's email manually. Make sure to change this info in your import file as well.
