OK, how about "A natural=cape can be part of a natural=peninsula, a
can be part of a larger natural=peninsula, but a natural=peninsula cannot
be part of a natural=cape"?

I've updated the proposal accordingly.

Good, thanks, but that also raises an awkward (& unanswerable?) question
about "Please do not map very large peninsulas like subcontinents as
multipolygons as they strain the servers too much and are hard to maintain"?

How big is "too much strain" & who can say it's straining too much?

Is Cape York Peninsula OK, but Italy too big?

How can anybody tell?

BTW I'm in no way complaining or objecting to the idea (I'll be voting for
it when it get's there!), it's just the question of the technical
limitations that may be involved?
