Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

The TIGER import brings in US Census Designated Places as a Level 8 Administrative boundary. As far as I understand CDPs are statistical boundaries and should be deleted. Is that true?

The unincorporated areas I'm working have 80,000 to 100,00 people essentially without a defining border. In reality people refer to where they live by their postal code.

Should I use postal code an administrative boundary?

I have no clue especially about USA boundary and postalcode system, but maybe you can ask again th the US sub forum at http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewforum.php?id=20 (log in there with your OSM credentials) or consult the tals-US mailinglist ... see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mailing_lists
