Could mkgmap be aware of the tile borders when closing polygons? When 
the open endpoints are within the current tile, do not close the 
polygon, and possibly emit a complaint to the error log. When the 
endpoints are outside the current tile borders, close by adding lines 
along the tile borders?

On a somewhat related note, there is some natural=coastline problem in 
Finland that JOSM cannot find in the natural=coastline extract of 
finland.osm.pbf. The error message only mentions generated relation and 
way IDs:

It would be helpful to see a coordinate of one of the ways. I guess that 
this is being caused by two islands being on top of each other.  
Apparently, JOSM could only catch that if the coastlines intersected.
