Of course it would be possible although you get the problem of 
maintaining this list.

Ok, so it seems a problem caused not only by the autolocation.

That's not a nice job to do... We might continue the boundaries along 
coastlines. This would be a job for a specialized BoundaryRelation class 
that inherits from MultiPolygonRelation.

I have finished my checks with Spain and the result is perplexing: The 
splitted tiles do not contain any boundary tag. I have used splitter 
r164. The .pbf file does contain them. So it seems to be a splitter bug 
(or I have used it wrong).
