No it's not possible at the moment. Can I ask you why would you prefer curved lines?
I guess it would be much clearer if we can somehow move the lines apart especially for areas or countries with irregular shapes. Also, it would look better.
Potentially. However, there are downsides as well. They would occupy more space, so there would be more overlap. Curved arrows would be more expensive to draw in WebGL: a straight arrow consist of just three triangles, whereas each curved line would consist of a couple dozens. I also prefer straight arrows because I think that it's more clear where they are going. But I agree that curved arrows are often more visually attractive.
