Way points and rocks

Notwithstanding all the factors involved here, my intuition says that it's not sensible to set large obstacles as way points in an otherwise empty sea. I recall a Greek ferry disaster where prominent rocks near a port where used as a waypoint, the autopilot performing a fantastic job of guiding the vessel to that very point (with equally tragic consequences).
