Yes. People will create a new "multipolygon" or "boundary" relation
containing each and every way of the Spanish coastline for every
geographic feature they can think of. Ah, surely this is part of
"Eurasia". And of "Europe". And of "Spain". And of the "Iberian
Peninsula". And the water is the "Mediterranean Sea". And ... then when
you split a piece of coastline in Spain, you've edited 25 relations
spanning half the globe.

Granted, it's a technical shortcoming, but while this exists people
should respect it.
