The Rio de la Plata example on the wiki page is pretty weird.

At lower zoom levels, Buenos Aires and Montevideo become "landlocked". Now
this may just be a rendering issue, but if these two capitals are
considered coastal cities, then they should be next to the coastline
instead of the coastline matching the UNCLOS baseline.
