I think there are only two countries in the world (according to the
wiki) who strangely think it better to use multipolygon relations
rather than boundary ones. For those of us who edit (and correct)
boundary relations in Potlatch the highlighting of boundary relation
members in purple rather than blue for multipolygons makes things so
much easier (especially at the moment in GA where I'm finding
landuse multipolygon imports by county butting up against the
boundary way).

So yes, I've considered it, and consider boundary worthy of being a
special case of multipolygon.
