Almost all of the arguments you bring up here are cultural or political 
in nature.  Discussing those will lead us nowhere.  Hence my suggestion 
to you in the other mail to consider this exclusively from the physical 
geographic perspective.

The only point i could identify in your writing that is not 
cultural/political in nature is the claim that the Rio de la Plata was 
first mapped 6 years ago when the riverbank polygon was created.  That 
is not true.  The Rio de la Plata was mapped long before - first 
significant parts started in 2011 already, by end 2012 the mapping was 
complete:

and it stayed tagged as natural=coastline until you changed that in:

https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/20290034

After that there were countless attempts to move up the coastline 
closure again - all of which however were soon reverted.
