OSM mappers have been busy in Southern California :-). Ventura county
is probably okay to upload; only a few roads mapped there, but there
is some not-insignificant mapping in Santa Barbara county, and some
substantial mapping in Los Angeles and Orange counties. Probably best
to let those "owners" merge the data themselves. Imperial county is
empty, too.
So, add:
Ventura
Imperial

And that should about do it for California until someone merges the
already-mapped counties.
