Those distances are not too dissimilar to the situation on the River
Dart, where this whole discussion started. 

So are we getting any closer to consensus on where the coastline should
cross the river? I think only if it is "somewhere between the tidal
limit and the sea". Are all "crossing points" then equally valid? Or can
we expect strong disagreements (especially at the limits) and possible
edit wars?
