Comment (by JohnDoe23):

 Has someone of the developers here ever tried to edit at 180 and -180? I'm
 editing there right now and can tell you that it's a big mess. Every good
 GIS-software has no problems with handling the 180th meridian, just OSM
 can't handle it.

 I can't understand why this problem isn't classified as critical - just
 try editing with JOSM in this area und you'll change your mind.
