After discussions on both the mailing list and the wiki we (that is myself
and Skippern) have opened the proposed boundary=maritime for voting at

We think this is the best way suggested to tag the whole hiearchy of
maritime borders, in a way that is useful for both renderers, other data
consumers and taggers. The proposal takes into account various claims of
sovereignty, ranging from the baseline to the EEZ.

Please be aware that this is a tag that is closely related to core map
features (national borders), and the result of this vote is likely to
influence most maps made using OSM data.
