This is why I'm trying to be careful with language, and use
'indefinite' rather than 'imprecise' or 'inaccurate' for the cases
where the margin of an area feature is not 'unsurveyed' or 'surveyed
badly' but actually not well established.

Indefinite margins, for some types of feature, comprise only
relatively small portions of the features' margins. We discard much
useful information by making no distinction between 'area feature
about which less than everything is well defined' and 'putative area
feature about which nothing is defined.'
