Last summer there was a big thread Differences with USA admin_level tagging
<https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/talk-us/2017-July/thread.html>
that talked a lot about odd cases in the US. As one example, Kevin
Kenny pointed
out

Geneva,
NY <https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/176059#map=13/42.8582/-76.9476>
which apparently has a portion in a second county. I haven't re-read the
who thread, but I seem to remember others mentioning a number of other
situations where administrative areas really can't be represented in a
cleanly nested way.

Best,
Adam
