   Yes - The "empty hoods" mode lends itself to importing the empty hood 
directly from the TIGER data.  We all complain about TIGER errors, and 
the risk of using an abbreviation expansion bot, but I'm quite sure that 
I make more typos per hundred roads than we'd ever see by using the area 
import with even a dumb expansion bot.   That's even with a double check 
before uploading; I'm wasting my mapper time proofreading rather than 
checking geometry or gathering survey data.
