I would say to leave it at 0x650c: there are other items in the 0x65--  
series that are not obviously made of water (e.g. sand bar), but which  
are located in or near water.  0x650c is listed as "island" by  
cGPSmapper, but falls in the "water based" category in Mapsource /  
GPS.  I guess it kind of makes sense as an island is in the water.

0x660x is listed by cGPSmapper as "gut" and is adjacent to other land  
features like gap, isthmus etc so I assume it means either some sort  
of cut-away in the land by the coast, or a promontory into the sea.   
As a native English speaker I can't say I've ever heard the term used  
in this way, but perhaps it's a specific geographical usage.
