Like much in OSM, it's a case of "if you build it they will come". If
someone were to provide such a service, perhaps (as Dave says) with a
coastline checker-like tool to accompany it, you can bet that our
mappers would take it on themselves to fix up borders.
It'd be a great addition - go for it, Roland.
