Where did you find the ZIP Code boundaries? They are licensed data from the
USPS and would not have a compatible license for OSM. Or are you refering
to ZCTAs (ZIP Code Tabulation Areas)? ZCTAs are not the same thing as ZIP
codes http://www.census.gov/geo/ZCTA/zcta.html. They are usually the same
but not always, this is because the USPS doesn't even give their ZIP Code
database to the U.S. Census.
According to this Wikipedia article
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZIP_Code_Tabulation_Area some of them represent
data that doesn't exist in the USPS database anymore.
Not trying to rain on your parade, just want people to be aware that it is
not the same thing.
