My opinion on the subject;

I agree that the ground principle should be followed, and the 3
nautical miles should be indicated and maintained as read only by OSM.
I don't know how to do this but with some help from Gibraltar
Government GIS project (http://www.geoportal.gov.gi/webviewer/)
someone should be able to help me.

Also if someone has a premium account on http://www.marinetraffic.com
should be able to prove the ground principle by checking this vessels
routes:
-SIR ADRIAN JOHNS
(https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/236112042/vessel:SIR%20ADRIAN%20JOHNS)

-RN HMS SCIMITAR P284
(https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:182849/mmsi:232002929/imo:0/vessel:RN_HMS_SCIMITAR_P284
)

they are GIB and UK boats and I'm sure they will not mess around in
Spanish waters
