> This is probably a holdover from "old style" multipolygons that were defined by the tags on the outer ways and had no tags on the relations. But putting tags on both the way and the relation would be wrong anyways, because the renderer can't know that boundary on the way is the same boundary on the relation.

This depends on the situation. Say you are mapping a public square
with a (separately as an area mapped) monument in the middle.
Obviously you would need a multipolygon relation, because the
highway-area should not cover the monument. But the name of the square
should IMHO remain on the way, because the whole square has this name,
including the monument.
