-1 to a site relation for an area with a defined outer boundary.

Relation = boundary (and =multipolygon) works fine for defining an area,
and you can make holes to exclude at my “outparcels” or villages which are
not part of the official protected area.

Mappers don’t need to add things to relations when the geometry is enough
to show that node A isi side of area B.
