Indeed, that is a case where overlapping admin_level=2 boundaries may 
make sense.

Another example is around Gibraltar, where both of the interested 
parties can claim to have some control over the some of the same pieces 
of the area concerned, and it's another place where I don't think what 
we've got in OSM is as good as it could be.

In the case of Gibraltar I'd suggest that a full discussion of the 
current situation is probably in order, and I've suggested the 
"International Boundaries" thread in the OSM forum 
https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=61207 in the past as a 
place for that (see e.g. my comments on 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/62809907 ).  I used that forum 
as a central place to refer people to during the discussions about the 
Western Sahara issues (see 
https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?pid=602864#p602864 for the 
start of that).
