Good point. I do try to remember to delete unnecessary tags, especially the
TIGER name.

My concern is when using tools like Battlegrid, which I strongly support,
users don't look at the tags. They see the TIGER 2013 overlay with a
different name than what OSM contains. This is especially a concern with iD
which unlike JOSM doesn't prominently show tags.

BattleGrid is still a viable tool. Most of our Edit-a-thon are centered
around cleaning up ways in the state.
