Hi Daniel,

Interesting text. Few comments:
* I've updated the image. The tags on ways 3 and 5 are not needed,  
since those are the outer ways of multipolygons. I also removed the  
JPEG artefacts (saved as PNG, etc.) and enhanced the color for wooded  
areas. By the way, shouldn't there be a node at the intersection of  
ways 1 and 3?
* I think it is possible to do imports in the fully integrated model  
as well. It isn't necessary to import everything at once, but it could  
be done in multiple iterations.
