I believe that OSm's most usefull attribute is to be up to date.

The only real way to do this is with a local mapper but bringing
the USA up to Tiger 2011 up-to-datedness would be a great start.

Are there tools to....

1. Compare named OSM roads with Tiger 2011 roads and highlight
just the  new ones.

2.Compare Bing imagery with Tiger 2011 and highlight any
apparent sealed roads that do not have Tiger 2011 ways.

Roads currently traced but not named can already be targeted
well using OSMI highways facility and could be fixed first.
