"polygon with holes" and "splitting outside into peices because it's
too long" are incompatable, you either do one or the other. A
riverbank has to be a single closed polygon, the only area feature
exempt from this rule is "natural=coastline".
TBH, I'd forget the multipolygon stuff and draw the islands as
natural=land or some such...
