I would have to second this observation, this would seem to go exactly against what we've tried to fix with multi-polygons (not to mention a future area object type). Not to mention that a single way can be a member of multiple different borders at different admin levels, so this would seem to be a non-starter in any case.

In addition, the border ways can be other objects. Rivers are quite typical, which are easily included in a border relation. Tagging all border properties on the waterway leads to chaos.

Besides the minor and not yet explained "maritime boundaries" case - what are the other advantages of the proposed change?

Hi all,

OpenStreetMap Carto, the default stylesheet on openstreetmap.org, is
considering to change the mechanism for rendering admin boundaries.
The proposed rendering of admin borders will be based on admin
boundary ways rather than polygons. This has a number of advantages -
for example, it will make it possible to style maritime boundaries
