[OSM-dev] Coastline completeness and the world

I think there's something I am missing about coastline -> shapefile
processing and error checking:
- If a tile within the coastlines is 100% land because it is fully
surrounded by a coastline and
- the coastline doesn't intersect the tile and
- the coastline isn't closed (and can't be closed by the error checker
by "jumping" to the next coastline segment)
does the area actually become land?
If so, how does the error checker recover from this?
If not, does that imply that we have no such "major gaps" in the really
large land masses right now?
I am still fighting to make my own coastline processing handle error
conditions that the error checker handles...and not always succeeding. :-(
