You are welcome, Tod; I'm happy to share what I know.

Yes, and this makes for an interesting view that Ito map provides, as areas 
which had roads non-TIGER added (manually or from another dataset/import) do 
show up as black.  For example, some Native American reservations display as 
all-black in this map, as many areas received no ways with TIGER tagging.

As I am not familiar with the "things you've read," while also wondering myself 
whether additional TIGER tags (tiger:cfcc, tiger:zip, etc.) should remain or be 
deleted, I also pose this question to the greater talk-us community.  What DO 
we do with these additional TIGER tags as we endeavor to "clean up TIGER" in 
the USA?  Is there consensus on a definitive "best practice" for removing or 
leaving them?  (Consensus is clear that we remove tiger:reviewed=no after we've 
reviewed the way).

Our wiki https://wiki.osm.org/wiki/TIGER_fixup is silent on this particular 
issue (of removing or leaving additional tags).  BTW another wiki of ours, 
https://wiki.osm.org/wiki/TIGER_Edited_Map gives a nice overview/documentation 
of the Ito map.

We might create a new thread or keep it in this one:  but even as a seasoned 
TIGER cleanup volunteer, I don't know what to do with additional TIGER tags, 
and I guarantee everybody reading this that I'm not alone there!
