The problem with these are that they often get inadvertently corrupted in OSM: they tend to lie along other features, which means that it's rather easy to get them inadvertently to share nodes, which in turn ends up with them being dragged around by mistake.

I fully agree with this comment. As a major contributor/maintainer of UK
admin boundaries in OSM I encounter this frequently. Where the
complexity is overseeable and time allows I prefer to disentangle admin
boundaries from highways, waterways etc.
