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


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