Thanks for your opinion, but these boundaries already exist in OSM's
DB and they keep getting constantly broken by people not understanding
that the road isn't the boundary and then their use of editing
software doesn't fix up relations properly after boundaries get split
to be used for various things.

Also the boundaries are from the govt department that handles
statistics, which only match boundaries by approximation.
