It really depends on the legal situation, sometimes sharing nodes is the
right thing to do (if the boundary is defined as being the river for
instance), sometimes it is to be seen distinctly (when the boundary is
defined by independent coordinates). In other cases it is even worse as
there are several "official" versions for the same boundary ;-) (in the
case of disputed boundaries, there are more cases than you might think).
