This makes even less sense and is even clumsier, especially for those
using iD if memory serves correctly. Single-member multipolygons are
also a clear misuse of the multipolygon relation; the prefix "multi"
means more than one. If, for some reason, the fence or the park boundary
differ, I can see making one or both a multipolygon, but if they are the
same then they should be tagged on the same way (at least as I see it).
