Even in the best mapped areas, by luck, there are a few nodes that never
got moved (even tiger typewriter monkeys can occasionally place a node
correctly ).  Thus you'll see little splotches of new tiger 2010 data kinda
all over.

The proposal on the table is that, perhaps, well mapped regions should be
left alone.
In the remaining areas, the Tiger refresh could then be even
more aggressive, perhaps even adding new nodes and metadata.
