Just a small remark about tagging. Could you consider using
place=state instead of place=province and place=county instead
of place=district? Even if the terminology is not completely
correct, it looks like the two mean essentially the same. Going
with the established tags in this case means that life is a lot
easier for data users and ensures that your data can be processed
in the same way as for the rest of the world.
