Our mapping conventions are based on our mappers, not consumers. As
you say, it's easy for the consumers to handle both situations, but
it's harder for mappers to deal with multipolygons-with-one-outer than
just a basic closed way.
Multipolygons are there to deal with the difficult situation, not to
make the most common situation more complicated.
We *must* keep putting the mappers first.
