Edit out that definition for Iceland if you don't think it makes
sense, like I said it's not even being used and might be confusing

I don't see how a continent boundary depends under any sort of
"administrative" tagging. Continents aren't collectively administered,
they're geographical and historical features.

Maybe I'm just imagining this but it looks like the nuances of the
coastline aren't reflected in the maritime border which always looks
relatively straight or curved.
