Im at the hospital on my phne so forgive typos. . . You dont need to worry about this. Its a kludge to improve the coastline render times, but JOSM doesnt like it.

Thank you for the quick reply, from the hospital no less. I thought it might be something I could ignore, but I didn't want to risk it without checking! I hope your visit is routine and uneventful.

Mostly routine and uneventful - typical post-cancer maintenance stuff.

I figured I should answer since not many people know about that issue. The conversion to "ogf:type=*" allows the coastline render to ignore these large relations, such as coastline collections or land_area=administrative. That way, the coastline render is faster. But it's non-standard, so JOSM doesn't recognize it.

Happy mapping.
