I'd say to just leave them.  People realize that if it got moved since
DaveHansenTiger that it shouldn't be treated as original TIGER data.

But, if there's anything inaccurate in there, don't hesitate to blow
them away.  They're not important.

I wouldn't worry about the weirdo TIGER bits.  If you change the name,
I'd probably just also delete the partial name tags.
