Topo50 coastline

Should we replace the LCDB current coastline with the TOPO50 coastline? 

The coastline of LCDB seems unique to LCDB. It differs from Topo50 which most would consider to be New Zealand’s authoritative coastline and (before our smoothing) it contained segments of stepped linework from early raster classification. We are contemplating delimiting the LCDB with a Topo50 coastline (through an as-yet undetermined process). What do you think?
