They have been tagged just as normal land borders, with
boundary=administrative and admin_level=2. The only difference is that they
(for obvious reasons) normally have only one contry name, sometimes none.

Replacing admin_level with something that indicates that the boundary is not
between two different administrative entities of similar "level".
