There seems to be no actual consensus on the way to map disputed borders.
The statement from the Foundation 
recommend to map the border that "best meets realities on the ground" 
but it's not what is actually in our database:
See for instance :
Both borders (according to Croatia vs according to Serbia) are mapped.

The same between Soudan and South Soudan: 

In some places, there are boundary=disputed or dispute=yes on the 
boundary ways, which is very convenient for a map-maker to know that 
there is a dispute on these border and that you may want to render it 
with a different style (or use another source).
Should this practice be generalized on all disputed borders or at least 
submitted as a proposal ?
