The coastlines tileinfo files for zoom-12 can easily be extended to
more levels. Storing 2-bits per tile takes 4GB total for the whole of
zoom-17. It would require a little work on the download side, but if
on upload full sea tiles are stored as two bits rather than a whole
file, I think it would make a considerable difference...

Have a nice day,
