Then there are ways, when the peninsula is huge, or when the land border isn't obvious, like the Italian peninsula or the Peninsula of India. I made a proposal for mapping peninsulas as ways:

I find it rather counter-intuitive to map a peninsula as a way.
Besides what you propose is rather an unclosed area than a way.

But the biggest problem – the unclear borders (and thus the lack of
verifiability) – remains the same.
