See my paragraph that I quoted on top. Now in more detail: The proposal says:
"If all the elements contained within an area (the perimeter) belong to the
site, and no elements of the site exist outside the area, then it is
inappropriate to use this relation."
That means that the relation should only be used for elements in differing
locations, i.e. NOT on one site. It is absurd to call that a "site" relation.
I also dislike the suggested special member roles: The positioning of the
label depends on the font size, the free space, the map section and zoom
level etc. and should therefore be determined by the renderer. The perimeter
is implied by the other members. The entrance is implied by the entrance=*
node(s) on the perimeter.
All in all, I see nothing good in the type=site proposal.

I don't know about the frowning. If you just look at pros and cons, you will
prefer type=collection over type=site.
