[Taxacom] Inappropriate accuracy of locality data

In the USA that is due to the fact that a describe line (property border for example) takes precedence over a measured line. For example, if I describe my south property line as between a creek and a tree but give the distance as a 100 feet when it is really 120 feet,  the legal border is still between the creek and the tree. If I only register the 100 feet with no description, I've just lost 20 feet.
