I agree with most of this.

One very useful thing I've found tho is the (off the top of my head) 
tiger:name_type=aly

seems all the alley's got imported as highway=residential - at least in 
my area - so the tiger tag is very useful for doing a JOSM search for 
all alleyways and changing them to highway=service, service=alley.  Once 
I figured that out it saved me hours upon hours of work and provided a 
marked improvement to several town maps in my area
