1) I think it is fine to consider differently named sections
of shoreline beach as separate objects 
(it gets trickier when areas overlap)

2) it is likely much easier to edit it in JOSM

A few years later, the name was then changed to "Surfers Paradise Beach", which, while more famous (?), is even shorter! In actual fact, this stretch of sand covers 9 separate named beaches / areas.

> To make matters worse, there are a host of relations involved in the same line/s: suburb (multiple), City, Qld & Australian boundaries; Mainland Australia relation; Coastline; watershed & undoubtedly more, of which breaking any one will mean the end of civilisation!
