I'm fine with that consensus. We confirmed with the person who reverted the previous edit that there was no specific rule being enforced. That mapper just thought it looked wrong.

I have a rather free day tomorrow so I'm happy to fix the st-lawrence section between Montreal and Sorel to tag it as natural=coastline.

Hopefully this should be fine for all.
