what do you mean by "land border"? They are national borders,
(administrative, level 2). There is this (approved but quite recent)
proposal:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Maritime_borders
which due to changes is contradicting the boundary page. Personally I
think that adding a maritime=yes (as proposed on the linked page) to
the boundary is a good way for indicating a maritime border, as it
doesn't break the previous tagging.

cheers,
Martin
