And i told you exactly that.
We all know you think bays and straits should best be mapped with
polygons and that it is a positive thing to steer mappers to doing that
(which by the way is against the goals of OSM-Carto even if your
opinion on this has merit). You can try to justify that all you want -
this does not change anything about the argument i gave against it -
that the polygon drawing almost never adds any verifiable information
on the geographic reality compared to a node or a linear way
I know i will not change your opinion on this - countless non-successful
discussions with you on much clearer and simpler matters have shown me
that. I can just hope most mappers will emancipate themselves from
this and not invest their time and energy in mapping and maintining
polygon mazes over coastal waters.
