How can I import a Media Library exported from a WordPress. com site?

WordPress.com has a really easy to use export tool for content and the software has a corresponding importer plugin that's easy to install and use.

"Export your content" @WordPress.com

"Import WordPress" on a typical WordPress implementation

It's also very easy to export the media library from WordPress.com, but I couldn't find a corresponding tool for WordPress to import the media library.

"Export Media Library" @WordPress.com

Now, I know there are third-party plugins that will allow me to do a bulk import of any collection of images, but I'm trying to document the process for people who are new to WordPress and websites in general. Isn't there a user friendly drag 'n drop method of importing a media library exported from WordPress.com?
