I have one note:
The wiki tells us something about tagging of multipolygons:
"It is suggested to apply all tags which describe the area to the 
relation, and not to the ways. In many cases this may result in 
completely untagged ways."
This means: if only one of the ways used for the relation is not 
completely tagged it may break the complete multipolygon.

The mp 406715 does not follow this rule. I don't know if that's a 
problem or not but you may consider to tag the multipolygon instead of 
all ways.
