[Imports] boundary import Update

I think the nuke/replace notion is sensible.

So I would suggest that you put up (github seems fine, doesn't really
matter as long as it's broadly accessible) several things:

  a pointer to the massgis data, and maybe a copy

  exact recipe for going from that to the .osm to upload (as scripts
  that others could run, if at all possible), annotated with
  explanatations for why the various choices are made

  the proposed .osm to upload

  how you're going to execute the nuke-existing-ma-borders operation

  an explanation of what happens to the borders with other states (the
  notion of leaving two and manual fixup after studying their view of
  the border makes sense)

  an explanation of how this relates to the coastline and the 12-nm
  boundary (saying that it is totally separate for now seems ok)

For the record, I agree that things are getting better, even if a bit
messy right now, and that we're on the road to having higher-quality
boundary data in Mass.
