Note that this tag is highly dubious, as both division Earth landmass into continents[1] and boundaries between continents[2] are mostly subjective and unverifiable.

Many, if not all, local mapping communities consider adding this tag as pointless and harmful.

Nowadays this tag is proposed for deletion by JOSM validator.
