there are cases where Serge's bot mode didn't modify a way because of prior
hand edits, and having these tags is valuable in those cases when you're
to decide what to do with a way. i have hit a case or two this week
while i've
been visiting central Iowa and doing a little mapping on the side. i do
delete these tags when i've determined that all the useful information
has properly
been folded, and i delete name_# tags which indicate route
identification once the
information has been transferred to a ref tag and/or a route relation.

i also agree with Mike N that tiger:county can be quite useful at times
and i'd
hate to see it go.
