[Tagging] Tagging disputed boundaries

Come to think of it, if the goal is to represent different perspective of
disputed territory, then mapping disputed territories as disputed territory
using claimed_by=* controlled_by=* does not seems like a good idea, as such
an area in OSM would need to include a line separating the disputed
territory from the territory it control which a number of countries would
refuse to recognize. I think it's better to simply map the outer boundary
of those countries' theoretical border and apply relevant tags describing
the identify of the area instead.
