[Talk-us] Discardable TIGER tags

I was unaware of the TLID bug and the fact that TIGER has changed
their data model although I kind of wondered about this because I
didn't see a TLID attribute in the new TIGER shapefiles. I guess the
new field is LINEARID? So yeah, that makes the tlid tag completely
useless then.

So, I think I'm going to submit a patch with the following tags:
tiger:upload_uuid
tiger:tlid
tiger:source
tiger:separated

The one argument for keeping the separated tag was that tags with a
"yes" value should be reviewed manually. But the tag will only be
removed if the object is being edited which means that it may have
actually been reviewed. And to me the signal to noise ratio on this
tag just isn't worth it.
