obviously there isn’t a correct position for a continent node that cannot be modified without changing it (similar to other place nodes which represent big objects, e.g. countries, states, regions, bays, etc.), but is this a real problem? Have there been edit wars about the positions of continent nodes in the past 14 years? 

Generally, kontinents are either delimited by the sea (e.g. australia) or are similar to other geographic regions (fuzzy, not clearly defined on a micro level). E.g. the border between Asia and Europe, or between the Americas.
