[Talk-us] Rural US: Correcting Original TIGER Imported Ways

I concur that deleting unnamed and untouched TIGER ways is the way (no pun
intended) to go. From my experience editing, many rural driveways mapped in
TIGER were converted to highway=service with access=private (though rarely
with service=driveway), though there are many more that are still just
highway=residential. If these are all deleted, it's not like we can't just
go through and map more driveways. (Driveway mapping doesn't often seem to
be much of a focus for a lot of people anyway, though they should still get
mapped eventually.)

For many of these roads around Pennsylvania, I generally set what appear to
be unpaved roads that go and piddle out in someone's field to highway=track,
and roads connecting to houses and buildings to highway=service. Sometimes
I'll fix alignment, but most of the time these fixes are sidelined in favor
of my main editing goal. I don't often go and edit random TIGER roads;
instead, I focus on the numbered routes in my state.
