When I went to CSB to talk about OSM Philippines and JOSM c/o the
"smart" staff and Computer Applications Org
I took the LRT-1 and saw again the largest Philippine Relief Map in
Luneta (http://mayniladailyphoto.blogspot.com/2008/01/philippine-relief-map.html).

So I had the idea of try to put in OSM.  So here it is rendered in Mapnik:

The data came from the actual coastline in OSM, with a whole lot of
generalization (I think it was  Douglas-Peucker Algorithm).

The tag is most likely wrong (natural=coastline).  This is what I call
micro-mapping-for-the-renderer.  If there are objections in adding
this to the database, I will removed without hesitation.
Still it was fun to do ;)
