I mostly agree with the added text, with the following criticism: it's a
very mathematical way of saying what shouldn't need to be said in the first
place. It should be obvious that a valid multipolygon relation
unambiguously defines a polygonal region, and I wasn't aware it was
necessary to explicitly declare all the subconditions required to achieve
I think the mappers who might break a multipolygon's validity probably
don't have the patience to read through several rules written in
math-speak. Perhaps it would be better to show counterexamples to each
"rule", and how to remedy each one (assuming the mapper actually knows what
region the multipolygon should cover -- because if the relation is broken,
software can't know).
