That's why I chose ocean, because I'm sure there's only one on each
coastline. There can be more than one bay or sea, like the Mediterranean
and the Adriatic sea. Relations are not possible, there's too much ways, so
the only thing I can think of are tags like
"sea_level_1:name:en=Mediterranean sea", "sea_level_2:name:en=Adriatic sea".
