Mount Everest node oddities

The Mount Everest summit point seems to have been moved a minute amount away from the border between China and Nepal. This doesn’t appear to alight with the international border going directly over the top point. As I assume this could be a very carefully surveyed point in terms of location, and not being familiar with the exact border situation in the region, I haven’t touched it yet. What would be the right correction here?

Also, the peaks is tagged with a purely synthetic isolation=20000 tag. Is this kind of arbitrary placeholder value the right way to go about it?
