basically you have just outer members then (one in the simplest case), renderers and other data consumers (geocoding etc) should not have problems, but it may be an extra effort to parse it (relation refers to way, way refers to nodes). Some mappers dismiss it for this reason. IMHO editing is much easier for these than it is for stacked ways, and when you want to have the way closely tied to the area like here, it also behaves generally as desired (when modifying the way, the area is automatically updated as well)
