It isn't ideal in the long run, nor meant to be the way to always keep things up to date. But the current database while it has some Cata, MoP, and WoD is still largely built on pre-cata information, many quests were removed, some added, chains changed, along with an outdated system where the NPCid Carbonite knows, is not the real ID. It's either scrap everything and start over using submissions, or scrape to clean the entire thing up then move to submissions going forward.

Ideally there would be some sort of API somewhere, but no one provides such.
