No, but you seem to be the only one complaining about people fixing 2
year old bugs.

In this case the puc site has much more accurate and detailed
information including both NPA/NXX for each city. The nanpa.com site
doesn't even give accurate information for the NPA in Sugar Land.

Oops, I misread the diff, the correction done in #249867 was just to fix
the fact that whoever added it did not know what state "TX" was. It
didn't add any area codes at all and in fact didn't address the issue
that Sugar Land is not in the 713 area code.
