What DO we do with these additional TIGER tags as we endeavor to "clean up TIGER" in the USA?  Is there consensus on a definitive "best practice" for removing or leaving them?  (Consensus is clear that we remove tiger:reviewed=no after we've reviewed the way).

JOSM has an internal list of TIGER tags that are silently removed on any 
edit - I find tiger:zip and tiger:county to be somewhat useful on 
maproulette challenges so I know where I landed.   There's probably 
another way to get that information though.  I'm not sure if tiger:cfcc 
has any supporters.   There's also this patch, and I don't know if any 
others have been added.
