I think the icon "relation" is too generic to have any value. I agree that
it makes sense to see multipolygons as subset of areas, but then there is
only one tag that is suitable for generic relations: "type". The other tags
that can make sense on a very specific relation (e.g. turn restriction
related tags) would be better represented with a specific icon / field for
this one specific relation type (e.g. turn restriction, route). There are
few tags that are definitely not suitable for say a site-relation (also due
to the fact that there are lots of different ideas what a site-relation
should achieve).
