+1 for not having statistical boundaries in OSM.

My objection is along the lines of what has been said about the boundaries changing. Once changed, who then takes responsibility to make it right?  If there is a lack of integrity at least in my experience I would look for more credible sources.

+1 to not having statistical boundaries in OSM.

Even actual legal administrative boundaries change as there are annexations, detachments, mergers, improved accuracy, etc., so what's in OSM (or from the Census) should be used with that in mind too.

... and there is no way to verify them on the ground. Yes, this is true for the various boundary/admin data too, but at least in that case there are good reasons for having them inside the OSM DB. So +1 for not having census boundaries in OSM.
