Heck, I don't even understand how to make a relationship for an area with 
holes myself!

Really, I'm aiming at simplifying landuse data and political boundaries, from 
big data imports. I think I had some nightmares importing the landuse data 
from Naga City and this whole idea as a result. Watching the JOSM validator 
tag *all* landuse data as overlapping just doesn't seem right.

Only complex areas with long adjacent boundaries would be affected. The 
standard mapper/user wouldn't need to learn anything new. I'm also assuming 
that any user that can use JOSM and the validator effectively shouldn't have 
much problems working with relations.
