I don't see why TIGER 2010 should be treated differently from any
other imports.  If you have data that you're sure is more accurate
than what's already there, and are using well-established tags, then
go ahead and import.  If you're not sure if your data is more accurate
than what's already there, don't import.  If you are making up your
own tags, then talk about it first.

What is it you want to import from TIGER 2010 in the first place?  I'm
not convinced there's any feasible way to import TIGER 2010 while
guaranteeing that the import is more accurate than what's already
