I also disagree. The discussion on this list about how to map groups of
lakes that share one overall name resulted in my use of type=group to
describe them. If I'm restricted to using the group relation for nodes
only, I'm back to square one.  I might just as well use a multipolygon
relation for them as I have in the past.
