WMS is strictly image based, so there is no vector data anywhere.

WFS is strictly vector based, so perhaps you can find what you are 
looking for with a public WFS service?

> Basically all I am after is a world vector map of coastal boundaries (low priority), ocean, country names and state names. I'd like to control the colours of the labels, the border colours and the land colour. I'll be adding my own image markers to these so I'm not to concerned about this.
