No, it is not a political issue, the position of the baseline is not in 
doubt here.  If Andrew wants to indicate the sheltered nature of the 
coast in some way via supplemental tags that seems perfectly fine - as 
long as these tags are documented and verifiable of course.

In any case tagging the bay as natural=bay will already indicate this 
part of the coastline to be of special nature.
