Is being altered by mapbox mappers using bing imagery. This is causing 
other entries - such as beaches - to be changed too.

There are also things like 'improving piers' too .. but back to this 
coastline stuff ..

My questions are;

Is imagery better than ABS data ? hi tide low tide .. anywhere the 
imagery shows it?

The source and attribution would be wrong ..

Thoughts.. ?
