Unfortunately, it seems that this approach is currently still 
state-of-the art. When I was looking for sea polygons for my map, I was 
unable to find any satisfactory mechanism for producing them 
automatically. I was given some manually created sea polygons for the 
German coasts by chris66 and I have created some for the mediterranean 
sea from the coast shapefiles used by mapnik.
