If the line on an open ocean beach is at the high tide line, it makes sense that all tidal bays and estuaries should also be included in the area outside of the coastline.

Then why the ability to mark natural=water as tidal and as salt?  Clearly the ability to use those attributes leads me to believe that just being tidal does not make it be coastline.
