I am not quite sure if we understood each other here. The index file
is responsible for pointing out the "100% sea" tiles. As soon as a
tile contains any bit of coastline, the index file is not looked at.
Lars suggested that we might replace the index file by a sort of
"hint node" or "control node" that sits somewhere inside the tile
area. (The more I think about that idea, the more I like it. The only
disadvantage I can see is that we'd start putting rendering
information into our database on an unprecedented scale (something to
the tune of 10 million nodes I guess, seeing that there are 4096**2
level-12 tiles and approximately 70% of them are water.)
That would make the index file unnecessary, but it would not help
with the Copenhagen coastline.
