Actually for me personally the wrong antarctic borders are not a
problem (I am interested mostly in Europe). But for OSM as a project
to map the world the current (wrong) display of antarctic borders is
not nice, see here:

It is of course better then having these connect to 0,0 ;-)

IMHO we should try to get at least a work around. If we inserted
additional (not needed) nodes on those borders at ~85 lat South this
would almost "work" (would IMHO be sufficient given the restraints
900913 sets up).

Any objections to insert these "intermediate" nodes in the antarctic borders?
