So you suggest if I come with some trash idea (like demanding to name a 
sea after my own name) you would advocate some approach in which my 
demand gets satisfied in some sort? I don't think zero-sum issue be 
relevant here.

The issue is in a very high political level. If OSM starts naming a 
water body in a way that contradict with international norms, aren't we 
making fun of OSM? Let's not make OSM the battlefield for political 
agendas. Whenever those issues are resolved differently in international 
level, then OSM can reconsider its naming as well.
