[Tagging] Basic cartography features missing, why?

I agree, but one renders (in some way at least), the other doesn't.
Which one will the casual mapper choose? I'm a bit impatient and like to
see results now. 

The cluster tag was drafted 2015, the group tag 2018. None of them
render as far as I know.

for groups, the group relation is clearly superior. First of all, it
implies group semantics and is defined. For a multipolygon, it may not
be clear what it is about, unless you invent tags for "a group of
lakes", a group of ponds, a group of trees, a group of island. But
still, it only works for areas, you cannot use multipolygons for groups
of nodes or groups of lines, or mixes of these.
