At least this is objectively reportable and we have tagging for this as a
result:  Disputed territory is mapped as part of each party state as well
as disputed=yes on the lines actually under dispute as a basic minimum.
Though this doesn't tell you if the dispute is, say, a low-simmering

flag (Denmark by way of Greenland vs Canada on Hans Island in the Kennedy
Strait) or a multilateral bloody humanitarian crisis like Kashmir.
