Proposal

There are not too much of them, but since capes are well known distinctive natural landmarks they should have a good definition and tag.

Rationale

Useful piece of geographical data. Though I don't know for sure but I think they are still useful for seafarers.

Examples

Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, North Cape in Norway (Northern tip of mainland Europe), see Wikipedia for a listing

Tagging

natural=cape
+ name=Name
+ url=[Homepage Homepage]
+ wikipedia:en=Wikipedia-page

Applies to

The most prominent node at the headland or the prominent land surrounded by sea. Please help define this better.

Rendering

For a node a black triangle, maybe a bit larger then the ones for mountains. Ways could be rendered thicker than the normal coast.
