I am not going to start a discussion here on the semantics of terms
like 'ocean', 'riverbank', 'coast' or similar which are inherently
culture specific and political.
So i repeat my request:
could you formulate a generic rule for coastline placement similar to
what i formulated in
(a) allows for the coastline placement you favor in case of the Rio de
(b) is based on verifiable physical geography criteria that can
practically be checked by mappers and
(c) that is compatible to most of the current coastline placements at
river mouths around the world?
If you can do that we can try to have a productive discussion without
delving into the swamp of politics and cultural differences and maybe
can find a consensus position that everyone can be satisfied with.
