Why not simplified area/polygon?

Can someone explain why the seas cannot/should not be mapped as (simplified) polygons? This would make it possible to e.g. tell approximately how large the sea is, render the name on maps covering just a part of the sea, and to scale the name depending on the size of the sea. --Anderfo (talk) 10:02, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
