are completely non-verifiable. They add data but they does not add any
substantial information about the verifiable geographic reality to the
database that could not be represented with a single node.
With these geometries:
a large portion of the geometry and as a result the derived way_area are
completely non-verifiable. Also here a properly placed node would
together with the coastline transport all the verifiable information
about the geographic reality there is.
