[mkgmap-dev] closed ways and multi-polygon relations

I like the solution to have the same behaviour as a polygon that comes
from a closed way: the joined way is passed to a concatenation of the
lines and polygons rules. It has the tags of the relation and
mkgmap:mp_created=true but mkgmap:stylefilter=poly{line/gon} is not

The option that was removed in Rev 1694 was:
	When reading OSM files, boundary relations are processed. By
        they are not processed because most of the boundary relations
        incomplete due to splitting of OSM files. When processing these
        incomplete multipolygons additional artificial boundary lines
        created on the tile bounds.

and the logic added is commented:
// Go through all original outer ways, create a copy, tag them
// with the mp tags and mark them only to be used for polyline
// This enables the style file to decide if the polygon information or
// the simple line information should be used.
Assuming there isn't a problem now when parts of a multipolygon are
outside the tile, I don't see any problem with the suggested solution.

Is there any other difficulty with bounds processing, ie does
bounds.zip feed in to mp processing and act as a replacement for
relations where type=boundary or is it simply used for filling in
location details? 

In the mean time I'm happy to use 
  (is_closed() | mkgmap:mp_created=true)
in 'lines' and convoluted logic in 'polygons' where I need to prevent a
shape being generated because I only wanted a line.

As a slight aside, I think that 'lines' should never {add area=yes}
just because it is dealing with a polygon. It can be tested, with an
assumption of yes or no, depending on the context, to chose a line or a
