i concur, Tiger 2010 has some much improved road centerline data for a 
of states.

we need some sort of conflation tool, maybe a josm plugin or something, 
that lets
us A-B current OSM vs potential imports and merge the parts we want to 
keep. it'd
be a semi-manual process, lots of existing tiger stuff can be just be 
replaced if it
was never edited.
