Me parece que a versão oficial das fronteiras é a disponibilizada pelo
LNCC (http://info.lncc.br), então eu recomendo comparar com essa fonte
de dados. O LNCC tem outras coisas interessantes, como a posição dos
marcos de fronteira (boundary stones), que também podem ser importados
no OSM (mais a título de curiosidade).
Uma das vantagens do LNCC é a descrição textual da fronteira, que
permitiria dar nomes a vários elementos geográficos usados para
referência (como rios, morros, estradas, lagos, ilhas, etc.).
