"Dead-end" territories: 12/2/2012 02:21:06

Territories with only one connection, or "dead-end territories" as I call them, can be found on a lot of maps. However, when a dead-end territory (typically an island territory) looks like it should connect 2 areas but doesn't, it frustrates me. Since I have only made one map ever and play in matches uncommonly, what are your opinions on dead-end territories? Do they have strategical values? Do you find them aesthetically pleasing or annoying? Should map makers use them in the future?

Examples of dead-ends: Bornholm on http://warlight.net/SinglePlayer.aspx?PreviewMap=8543

the only strategical value to them that i see is that you cannot be flanked in them.
