Hopefully, the drawing works?

Not sure if this will make any sort of sense, but here goes!

Countries A & B share a common border, stretching from Country C to the
Ocean (& wouldn't it make for much easier mapping if things did look like
this!). Both countries are happy with the top & bottom sections of the
border (solid, straight lines). The old border continued as the straight,
dashed line. Country A has now decided that the border should follow the
line of the river that curves 50klm into "B" (curved dashed line).

So, the borders (solid lines) would already be marked as
boundary=administrative + admin_level=2

How about marking the disputed area (dashed lines) as a new level, say
boundary=administrative + admin_level=15?

That could also then be rendered as a dashed red line on the map, & maybe
even show the whole area between these as a red cross-hash or similar, to
warn mappers that this area is in dispute, so be careful with how things
are marked.
