Speaking as a data consumer and a maintainer of the major software which
handles multipolygons, I much prefer mapping to be done as a basic
closed way instead of a multipolygon with one outer. I support
converting the latter to the former where it exists already. This agrees
with what I have heard from other major data consumers.
