I think it's slightly unfortunate that OSM uses the tag 'historic' for 
something that's different to what we are discussing here. As well as 
being potentially ambiguous, it may also encourage people to add 
boundaries that are "historic" in the sense used used by proponents of 
the traditional English counties.
