this one deleted the MV,SV border. not much damage otherwise
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/11044834

The challenge with the other changeset is the size. analyzing the history is so hard. Reverting a whole changeset is very difficult with subsequent edits  of others. There will be so many conflicts in that process that going forward  things is often easier. 

especially some of these borders had been imported over each other and there is still duplicates and misaligned borders. I am not aware of a high quality set of city borders. The tiger borders are of very low quality and where possible I have aligned to the county borders.

Unfortunately, at least the Sand Hill/I-280 interchange has been subsequently edited by others.
