natural=baseline is proposed as a way to tag the Mean Low Water Spring, or Low Tide Line, and resolve most of the problems concerning intertidal zones.

Proposal

Until now natural=coastline is used to map the Mean High Water Spring line, but there is no structurally equivalent for the Mean Low Water Spring line.

This proposal tries to solve most problems derived from it.
