I thought part of the controversy was the very large polygons involved.
You can map a
strait as a way or a node.

Some may think of it as label painting, but that is a definite geographical
feature.  A passage
which is generally preferred to other routes through narrower straits even
though the weather
is a little rougher.

I'm with you on this one.  If the rules we work to insist that we cannot
map features such as
this so that people can see them on OSM then the rules are wrong.
