Ok, I'll try to summarize and comment the feedback:
The ABS datasets are probably not first choice in terms of accuracy. In
lack of a better alternative this would lead to the question whether to
use what's available or leave the borders missing. I think this decision
should be made by the Australian community.
By the way, I compared the datasets directly with what's in the map
today. For existing borders of National Parks etc. they seem to be
identical - this would at least give consistency.
Another point is to make sure not to delete manually surveyed data. This
shouldn't be a problem as I would not delete anything at all. I'm not
considering a bulk import but more a selective import to close the gaps.
The reason for using datasets from data.gov.au basically them being
ODbL-compliant according to . But this should also allow the use of
the most recent dataset for the electoral boundaries .
