Relations are part of my plan and sharing ways should be included too. 
It's interesting that the boundaries do follow rivers, though not always 
in the middle, but they don't seem to follow the mid-line of roads. It 
seems that roads are in area or the other. There are obvious places 
where the boundary jinks across the road. I've not examined a large 
number of polygons yet, but this seems to be the case so far.

Cheers, Chris
