Obviously my comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek; I am personally 
convinced that the unedited TIGER landscape - i.e. a map of which 
virtually nothing is correct and once you start to work somewhere you 
have to touch almost every single object if you want an acceptable 
result - is the worst situation for attracting mappers. Therefore, 
returning an area to how it was after TIGER (and deleting selected 
objects for good measure) is certainly not creating an "empty area" in 
the sense of the "do empty areas attract contributors" theory.
