Yes but it should be an exception that such tiles are rendered at  
all, I think. After all, who would navigate to a sea tile and then  
request a re-render of that? As long as there's no data on them, a  
manual rendering request is the only way they will ever get into the  

We could build a workaround like the one you described but I thought  
that's not worthwile due to the very small number of such tiles I  
expect to be rendered. Maybe my estimate was wrong?
