Looks like a great list of challenges!

   Considering that there are a number of counties in my region (Upstate 
South Carolina) where we plan on synchronizing to the newest official 
data and verifying against imagery, a TIGER compare challenge would be 
counter-productive.   There were a great many name changes and street 
additions and deletions compared to 2007 TIGER and probably even recent 

   Of course there's always the chance in the future if all local 
mappers go inactive, it would make sense to have a TIGER challenge to 
add the new and growing areas.
