(picking this thread up again because there still hasn't exactly been a
meeting of minds here)
land polygons have been generated (see
https://osmdata.openstreetmap.de/data/land-polygons.html ) and
https://github.com/fossgis/osmdata/issues/7 has been resolved by
manually "releasing" the coastline. The current situation in OSM is
https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/WD8 - at the time of writing this the
coastline crosses the river north of Buenos Aires.
However, edits are continuing (see
https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/88787419 ). I'm not convinced
that moving to one of two extremes, even a small amount at a time, is a
good idea until there's actually been discussion between the proponents
of the various positions.
For what it's worth, neither extreme position looks the best answer to
me - looking at the salinity change between river to ocean at
the key picture) and looking at
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datei:Rio_de_la_Plata_BA_2.JPG suggests a
location some way between the two. Despite the NASA photo it looks like
there isn't a "step change" in salinity - and of course values will
fluctuate based on winds and tides etc.
