Hence my request: please don't import TIGER addresses using the
Karlsruhe Schema in locations where there is better data already
available.

In particular, please don't import this stuff into Hillsborough
County, Florida.  Not unless you're going to use a schema which can
co-exist with actual addressing.

I believe the state passed a law but I really haven't bothered to
investigate.  You're not in Florida, right?
