what do you mean by "land border"? They are national borders,
(administrative, level 2). There is this (approved but quite recent)
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.
