How does odoo decide if a field is importable

I have the following field that I added to the model

import_action = fields.Selection([('none','None'),('confirm','Confirm'),('ship','Ship')],
               'Import Action',

I need to be able to import this field. Or, for some reasons, odoo consider it as not-importable.

Can someone explain on what criteria odoo based itself to decide if a field is importable or not?

I did some tests, and here are my conclusions.

You can only import fields which are not readonly.

All readonly="True" fields are automaticaly set to non-importable.

Isn't there any other criteria that prevents a field from being imported ?
