[Talk-us] Satus CDP

As someone who does research with Census data, it would be helpful to keep
all Census geographies in place (at least until Census decides to get rid
of them). Someone will use them at some point. Additionally, they're an
official component of Census geographies, as bureaucratic as that might be.
That alone seems to make them significant enough to keep. Deleting them
because they appear useless seems short sighted. It's not like roads are
deleted from OSM just because nobody uses them.

I would delete it, the boundary is useless. The name is still on the
place node next to what I guess used to be the railway station.
