it seems to me that there are 2 possible solutions
- put the disputed area in the type=boundary boundary+administrative 
relationship of the 2 countries and put dispute=yes on the way(s) concerned.
- put the disputed area in neither of the two relationships.
this area 'll be a mp, and thus a relation type=boundary 
boundary=disputed make sense.

it should also be ensured that it is a conflict and not simply
an unintentional inconsistency caused by unshared way
where they should have been
