In my mind, these halos around al islands, are in itself a good reason to
provide som kind of hints for renderers in tha tagging of maritime borders.
An renderer that does not want such bubbles can probably do some kind fo
magic in their copy of the database to find "boundaries more or less 12 nm
from a coast" and not render them, but it is hardly an easy operation.
