Despite the remaining problem of just how best to map the Iarge Alaskan bay
that started this conversation, it's been very interesting. For now, I'll
just let it remain as a node and hope that a better label rendering
solution for a water body as large as Cook Inlet comes along during my
lifetime. I will decide whether to use multipolygons to show smaller bays
and straits on a case by case basis.

Thanks to all for your contributions.
