That is theoretically possible and you could even do it yourself if you are willing to spend some time on it.

The process is roughly as follows:
* Download government dataset
* Convert to OSM PBF using ogr2osm
* Compare with OSM using Cygnus
* Convert output file to GeoJSON
* Upload to MapRoulette.

See http://blog.improveosm.org/en/2018/01/new-features-and-enhancements-in-cygnus/ <http://blog.improveosm.org/en/2018/01/new-features-and-enhancements-in-cygnus/> and http://blog.improve-osm.org/en/2018/01/cygnus-conflation-at-your-fingertips/ <http://blog.improve-osm.org/en/2018/01/cygnus-conflation-at-your-fingertips/> for a little more background.

There’s also an option to use Ian’s workflow to identify missing roads (not missing names, but perhaps it can be adapted) that he uses for the TIGER overlay.

In the mean time I’m asking the Telenav map team to churn out the files for the Challenge but they’re on some other project right now.
